If you were expecting to see a sarcophagus with a figure of Emperor Ferdinand II on top, you will be sadly disappointed. His tomb and that of his first wife are marked only by stone plaques. There is a sarcophagus in the mausoleum, built for...More

6€/person without any kind of information or explanation. The personal was not too kind. From the top of the tower you can't see the city as I expected. The view is worse than from the hill.

I came here because I'd been to the imperial mausoleum in Vienna last year and wanted to complete the set of Austrian royal tombs. The mausoleum is surprisingly large for just one Emperor, with plenty of ornate shrines upstairs and the tomb downstairs. You can...More

There was no guided tour when we were there, but it was beautiful. Much more than I expected to see in a Mausoleum. Make sure to hang on to the handrail going down the steps. Don't forget to look up. Everything is decorated.

The entrance is quite cheap and the inside is beautiful, full of frescos and ancient decorations. There is a tomb in the lower level that looks fascinating.

It was not open the day of our visit (I assume because of the fest taking place in the city) we were very much impressed with the outside architecture. I am sure the interior is equally impressive.

Slightly pricey if you're not a student, but it is a unique place and is interesting inside. A good piece of Austrian culture, more interesting if you know the relevance! You can also go up the tower which has a great view and feels Notre-Dame-esque.
