We walked to the Masoleum and beautiful church attached. The cript is worth the stairs down, the view is worth the trip to the top. Very ornate and beautiful inside- don't miss the church.

Very impressive! Such beautiful architecture, statues, paintings. You also must climb the bell tower to see amazing city views. See and hear the bells ring. Little deafening but worth the experience.

Part of every standard tour of the historical old town, nice Baroque mausoleum. Try it on a gray and freezing cold winter day, then go somewhere warm and bright and have a hot drink to raise your spirits.

Make sure you climb the bell tower for a great city view! The mausoleum Is in great condition. The people of Austria have done a great job in the upkeep of this historic spot.
