Kapuziner Crypt (Kapuzinergruft), Vienna

(4.2/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Stand close enough to touch the remains of Austrian royalty at Kapuziner Crypt (Kapuzinergruft)--the final resting place of Habsburgs. The burial chamber beneath the Capuchin church and monastery has been the place of entombment for this royal family since 1633. It houses the bones of 145 Habsburgs, including 12 emperors and 18 empresses. Walk down the well-lit and airy chambers with bare walls. See how 107 metal sarcophagi range in style from puritan plain to exuberant Rococo. Enter the Maria-Theresia-Gruft--a domed chamber dominated by a huge, elaborate sarcophagus for the empress and her husband. Note how the plain coffin of Emperor Joseph II stands in remarkable contrast to that of his parents.

  • by chance we came. from the outside don't understand that a few stairs make us go back centuries. It is the crypt of the Habsburgs, almost everyone, including sissi and there are two empty seats and ready for use. You visit in a short time but worth it

  • According to our guide, this would be one of the top attractions. I find this absolutely. Apart from digging and chests of the imperial family and you become here really not happy. It is not a must see.
