Great building but expensive fee!

The building is great, beautiful and nicely decorated. You can see the sarcophagus of the emperor and his wife. The interior is lovely. You can also climb up the tower and enjoy... read more

Slightly pricey if you're not a student, but it is a unique place and is interesting inside. A good piece of Austrian culture, more interesting if you know the relevance! You can also go up the tower which has a great view and feels Notre-Dame-esque.

They say it's meant to one of the most beautiful mausoleums artistically in the world, and I can see why. Upstairs were two chapels with amazing marble altar pieces, although I'm not sure if there's actually room for a priest to say mass. It is topped by a beautiful dome filled with breathtaking paintings representing different scenes from the bible,... More

The building is great, beautiful and nicely decorated. You can see the sarcophagus of the emperor and his wife. The interior is lovely. You can also climb up the tower and enjoy the view of Graz. The fee for one adult is 6 € which is too much for what it has to offer. Yet if you are interested in... More

Hadn't expected this to be quite such a big mausoleum. Loved the space, the light, the marble, the domes. Also loved the painted marble....not sure what the name for this art style is, but very effective.

For two adults and two children we paid 16 euro. Once inside there was very little to see compared to the cathedral next door, which was free! The marble alters were made of painted wood and not real marble, the crypt is only viewed from a distance, and the walk to the roof is littered with bird droppings and dead... More

If you go to Graz that's one place to visit!! The Mausoleum is very beautiful, the ceiling is all painted. There's also a tower that you can go to the top and have a view from the city. It's a shame all the information is only in German, and they sell some small brochures in english. I bet that each... More

When we walked in the young woman who was selling the tickets looked annoyed that I asked questions. She charged us full price (my mom is a senior citizen). There's no information in English. When I asked about the information the ticket woman rolled her eyes and told me to buy a brochure. When I asked her why (I just... More

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.

Don't let the entrance fee keep you away to visit this jewel of Graz. You won't regret the fantastic paintings in the church, the Mausoleum itself or the view from the clocktower. This is one of my personal highlights in Graz!

This splendid building, which would not be out of place in Rome, adds much to the rather Italian atmosphere of Graz. There is not a great deal to see inside but the tower is worth climbing.
