Tour of the Imperial Crypt

Imperial Crypt, Tegetthoffstrasse 2, 1010

This is a first for me, but comes highly recommended and is not as grizzly as it seems. This burial chamber beneath the Capuchin Church and monastery was founded in 1618 and has served as the principal burial crypt for the members of the House of Habsburg

The bones of 145 Habsburg Royalty, including 12 emperors and 18 empresses lie here with over a hundred metal sarcophagi  ranging in style from plainly puritan to exuberant rococo. Some of the dozen resident Capuchin friars continue their customary role as the guardians and caretakers of the crypt. Friends and partners welcome.

Entry fee and tour guide cost €16, (less if more than 10 sign up)
