This is a set of crypts with various sarcophagi containing remnants of the Habsburgs. It doesn't take too long to visit but, even though some sarcophagi are indeed quite spectacular, the entire experience is rather boring and not quite informative for a foreigner without a massive interest in the history of Habsburgs, as there is almost none information in English....

A must see but doesn't require a lof time. A short walk from the Hofburg this where the most prominent Habsburgs are enterred. Very elaborate sarcoforgi. Center piece and my interest was the resting place of Empress Elisabeth. To me a most fascinating and emancipated woman.

It could be a little strange for some people, but it is interesting to see. Only criticism is for name's plates in front of coffins which are they only on German language.

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.

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.
