Full description
Discover the Capuchins’s Crypt, also known as Imperial Crypt, in the city center of Vienna, just below the humble church and monastery of the Order of the Capuchin Friars. See where the mortal remains of the Hapsburg emperors, empresses, and family members are laid to rest. Visit the extraordinary vault system still under the custody of the Capuchin Order, and discover the history of the famous Habsburgs family. Multiple extensions and modifications were made in a time span of over four centuries, that extended the crypt. Today, the system consists of a total of ten vaults, which now host the sarcophagi, urns, and funerary monuments of the Habsburgs. Learn also about the designers and creators of the crypt’s rooms. All rooms evoke the dynasty's imperial power and grandeur. To this day, the mortal remains of 150 Habsburg personalities, such as Maria Theresia, Franz Joseph, his beloved wife Elisabeth, also known as Sisi, and their son Rudolph, rest in the Imperial Crypt.

    Very much an amateur excursion. Impressionable people are better off not walking

    Very exciting, unfortunately not as big as expected, so you can get through it pretty quickly

    A very special experience for those interested in history - if other visitors do not believe in devotion, you should be patient until silence has returned.
