We were on the fence about visiting the imperial crypt, but when we literally stumbled across the entrance we thought why not? So glad we did! We had already been through the imperial apartments, Sisi Museum, Schoenbrunn Palace, etc, so by this point we were familiar with several names on that family tree. So it was very interesting to walk through this place and actually see their final resting places. The tombs are very intricate for the most part, and the whole experience very intriguing if not a little macabre

It's amazing how much you can learn about history from a crypt. It's fascinating to see how lifespans changed through the years and to get to the end and realize that they still bury people there... Some of the tombs are really beautiful and it's also interesting to see the different styles from each century.

I love things like this along with cemeteries. I was amazed at the elaborate art work on some of these. I was told that most of these people (Royalties) have theirs designed while they are alive.
When i first walked in i was pretty impressed with the the coffins but as I went on they became more elaborate and the best ones look like royal pieces of art. It is nice ot visit the palaces and learn of the Hapsburgs before you go but if you dont have time it is still very interesting.

If you're the type of traveler who would visit cemeteries to see tombstones of famous people, then this is definitely for you. You'd probably enjoy it more if you brush up on your Habsburg history beforehand. But even without the historic background, you can still enjoy seeing the coffins as incredible pieces of art. After visiting these royal bodies, consider complementing your visit with one to the catacombs of St. Stephen's cathedral, where the organs of these royals are housed.
