The place is fantastic. We really liked Kapuziner Crypt. The details on the crypt are really beautiful. Kapuziner Crypt gives you an insight on the leaders of Austria. The place also has the tombs of Franz Josef and Sisi.

We wanted to find somewhere to come in out of the cold and stumbled upon the church-a rather plain looking building from the outside. The crypt was very interesting-not full of tourists so you could have a leisurely walk round, however there was no writing in English which spoilt it a bit because it would've been nice to find out...

This place is great. I loved it! Most of the famous Habsburgs, including the Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife the Empress Elisabeth, are buried here. Many of the coffins are absolutely amazing - ornately decorated works of art - and photographs are allowed. It's not an overly popular attraction, so not swarming with tourists, which adds to its appeal.... More

What a surprise. Vienese are great at death. Sumptuous celebrations and obsessions. What an effort to find but so so worth it. There are some dreadful tourists who thimk the dead are watching us still!! No cameras!! etc The religiously obeseed.

An unreal experience: calm, quiet and yet peaceful. Would have been useful to have literature in English as well. However as a non touristy option - it's well worth and hour of your time

Visiting the crypts is the perfect wrap up of all things Hapsburg in Vienna. The tombs have such fascinating detail, all quite different from one and other. Take the tour, its just a few euros more and get detailed information on the history of who is laid to rest there. Expect to spend about an hour there.

My traveling companion wanted to visit here, and I joined her out of graciousness. To my surprise, it was very interesting. The bronze tombs are incredible works of art. There is one there, for a woman whose name fails me, that has four veiled, mourning bronze female heads at each of the corners of the bronze tomb. To have done... More

This is a must to see in Vienna. Located in center of Vienna, but not so crowded. You can order a guided tour or you can wait for such a tour which happened 2 times per a day. Or you can buy a guide book. This crypt contains remaining of most powerful people in Austrian's history. You can find here... More

This is a really interesting place, fullof super-ornamented coffins, each one telling a stroy. Sculptures are beatiful and Maria Theresia tumb is really over the top ornate. Certainly a must see for history lovers

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
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 Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
