Imperial Crypt

One of the city's great treasures.

In Vienna you become accustomed to seeing grandiose monuments announcing grandiose contents. But in this case, the 17th-century Capuchin Church is a sober, unassuming affair indeed, little hinting at an interior which is one of the city's great treasures: the Imperial Crypt. Beneath its floor lies the pantheon of the Habsburg dynasty, the remains of more than 142 royal personages, ending with the emperor Franz Josef I and his sons, empress Elisabeth and her brother Rudolf. Passing among these sarcophagi, some elaborate, some fairly simple, is like walking through history.
