For obvious reasons this is more or less a must see in Vienna. That said, there really isn't that much to it. Lots of buried Habsburgs, in differing styles.

Very different from what I imagined. A long line of tombs, made with the different styles of each time. There is apparently no place for devotion, the place is cold and aseptic. A historical trip, but not so appealing

Some people love life, others cemeteries, graves, dark cellars with skulls. Resting Habsburgs don’t have enough peace. Nothing is wrong with kind guides, with entrance fee, and location near the Hofburg, few steps from the church. My choice is to stay with life and more...More

This was my favorite activity we did in Vienna. I like history and seeing the ornate, sometimes massive, sarcophagi was incredible. The variations over the years and the changes in style and size are striking. The day we went it wasn't packed with people and...More

Big crypt with lots of caskets, including one for Maria Theresa that is big enough to hold several people. Franz Joseph’s was far more modest, probably a reflection of the changed circumstances of the empire on the cusp of being broken apart after the end...More

Beautiful site filled with intricate sarcophagi of several royal family members. It's definitely worth the visit and price is not unreasonable. You get a moment away from the heat as well if you are visiting during the summer. If you are really interested in the...More

The entrance to the crypt is separate from the church and there is a small charge. This has been the principal burial place for the Habsburgs since 1633. It contains the bodies of 145 Habsburgs, plus urns containing the hearts or cremated remains of five...More

At first you get confused. The sarcofags seem to be somehow in odd order. But with the booklet (also in English) and the info signs (in German) you quickly reach the flow to who-was-who and what they did in their lifetime. After the visit you...More

We found the Imperial Burial crypt in Vienna to be very interesting as well as impressive. We first tried to visit one afternoon but found it to be very crowded and fully booked so we returned the next morning. This time we were among very...More

Visited before, but wanted to return as it’s really interesting. They have signs up saying no flash photography, and to be quiet. So imagine my dismay when a noisy tour group with cameras flashing started round, blocking up the route round. I returned to the...More

In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards
Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks
such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera),
Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral)
and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’
former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as
Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse
and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The
