Kapuzinerkirche

Although nowhere near as spectacular on the outside as other Vienna churches like St. Stephan's Cathedral or the Karlskirche, The Kapuziner Church is none the less worth a visit for what it holds inside.

The foundation stone for the church was laid in 1922, and has since held the bodies of important members of the Habsburg Royal Family in the Kaisergruft or Imperial Crypt. Inside this crypt are the bodies of nearly 150 aristocrats, including 12 Emperors and 18 Empresses.

Many of these tombs or crypts are ornately decorated and are on display and can be seen during a tour of the church. One of the most impressive is the tomb of Maria Theresa and Francix Stephen, the parents of Marie Antoinette.

Today the crypts are still looked after by Capuchin friars, like they have been for centuries.

The Kapinzer Church can be found on Neumarkt, in the center of Vienna. It is easy to reach with public transport, or even by foot from some of the surrounding attractions such as the Spanish Riding School or the Hofburg Palace.
