Very modest Church in Vienna city center is a location of Habsburg Imperial tombs. Chursh is realtively small if to compare with Stefansdom and other big religious buildings in Vienna - but historical impact is really strong. If you are into history, its must to...More

This was very impressive. Many, many sarcophagi of the members of the Habsburg Dynasty are here. It's almost 400 years old. The sarcophagus of the beloved "Sisi" is here, too. The church is very non descriptive from the outside. We actually didn't see it right...More

This is a fascinating place. The burial vaults are incredible pieces of art. Good way to spend an hour or so, and it is not expensive to get in.

Great trouble finding this place. Had to stop and ask multiple people before someone gave us correct directions. Fascinating to see all these famous crypts in one place. Unfortunately there were no tours today and they ran out of English guides to read. But we...More

A site of historical importance and fascination if you are interested in the Habsburg dynasty. There are many stairs from the main entrance and I did not notice a lift.

Hi. According to their website there is the possibility of having a guided tour that takes ~1,5 hours. You will have to pre-book because the guide is apparently not on-site all the time. You can find more information on... More
