Fascinating Crypt

I thought it was pretty cool seeing the ornate coffins and the progression in design over the centuries.

It was very awesome to see all of the tombs. Some of them were extremely intricate. Don't buy a map the place is very small, I made that mistake. Overall very cool. The only issue was there was no English so we breezed right through and really only spent about 15 minutes down there, without being able to really learn... More

Worthwhile and open late. During your visit to Wein you learned all about the royals. This is your opportunity to visit their remains. Worth a 1/2 to 1 hour visit. Interesting to see the varying sizes of the coffins.

This family burial crypt for the Hapsburgs puts the whole family tree in perspective - most recent burial was 2011. Some tombs are more elaborate than others; many have fresh flowers and wreaths.

You like hystory, and the glory of the empire. You have to visit the vault. From the early days of the dinasty to the last, the Hapsburg's are here. It specially intrested me the honour the Hungars give on memory as well as the mexican colours

I liked visiting this place, but I love history and crypts anyway :) The museum is easy to visit and on a hot summer day it goes very well.

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.

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.
