Kapuziner Crypt (Kapuzinergruft), Vienna

4.2
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.

  • The Imperial crypt or the Capuchin Crypt is the place where are the coffins of several members of the Habsburgs. Despite the location being gloomy, it is possible to admire the arts developed in coffins and, also, have the opportunity to closely observe the tomb of illustrious personages of world history.

  • The Imperial crypt is located in a corner of the Neuer Markt square right next to the Church of the Capuchins. Entrance to €7.50. Ultimately it's about a place that hosts the remains of family members of the Habsburgs in more or less elaborate sarcophagi, imposing to Maria Theresa. Visit that takes a half hour.

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
