Worth visiting. You should know something about Habsburgs or have an audio guide! It is allowed to bring flowers or messages on paper and lay them in front of sarcophagus, usually of Empress Sissi. People love her story.

Definitely worth a visit. A great place to learn more about the history of Austrian rulers. The coffins are so impressive and fascinating to see, it really is a great way to spend an hour when you're in Vienna.

The church was a little tough to find, and the crypt was right next to it. We missed it the first time around. It's sombre and reflective, with few people around. It's the resting place of all the Hapsburgs , with some of their tombs...More

145 members of the Habsburg family - all united. Impressive, thought provoking, peaceful. Keys to the coffins used to be kept in the cupboard at the Hofburg Treasury.

The crypt can be found beneath the plain-looking Kapuzinerkirche and presents an interesting, if slightly morbid, glance into Austrian history. Interred here are the bones of many members of the Hapsburg royal family, and their tombs are strange, almost reliquary-like works of art. You can...More
