I had just visited the Hoffburg Palace & saw the Imperial Treasury there having religious treasure removed from the Capuchin Church, which spurred me on to visit this church located close by.I see a plain building with a simple & coarse architecture & on the front facade, the insignia of the Capuchin order. I got the feel that the Church`s... More

The funerary halls of Austrian Kaisers. There are beautiful sarcophagus. Each Coffin has its special sculpture designs

Located near by the main cathedral this is the church where the hapsburgs are buried. It's very peaceful and quiet also the coffins are all beautifully designed. Would suggest visiting after a day spent at the schonbrunn palace or sisi museum, as that will give you more information and context about who is buried here. The church itself isn't that... More

This is the location of the bodies of the Hapsburgs, and it is a really interesting, educational, and moving place to visit, well worth the cost of admission. The coffins are absolutely beautiful, with stunning artwork and decoration.

After having visited all the Hapsburg palaces and museums it was amazing to visit the imperial crypt and see the final resting place of figures like Maria Theresa and Sissi among others. Breathtaking and beautiful old tombs.

Took a picture of it totally unaware that Marie Theresa was interred in there. Given the lavishness of the other buildings quite surprised as to how plain this one is. Did'nt go in as pushed for time to catch a boat.

Underground location of the Imperial bodies (other body parts are interred elsewhere). There are beautiful sarcophagi for most of the royal family members here. The ever popular Sisi is here and gets lots of attention, but all the sculptural coffins are works of art. Good for an hours stop.

Stumbled across this whilst exploring Vienna. The church is very simple from both the outside and the inside compared to the baroque splendours you see everywhere else. The highlight was underneath the church - the imperial crypt of the Hapsburgs - where 145 of them are buried. The sarcophagus' have to be seen with their sometimes grotesque carvings. Recently deceased... More

I have written a separate review for the Imperial Crypt which is found below this church. If you visit the crypt, it's easy to miss the interesting church itself. It houses the coffin of Marco D'Aviano, the prelate who was present at the battle to relieve Vienna in 1683. It also contains an interesting selection of plaques (if you are... More

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.
