Michaelerkirche Vienna

Michaelerkirche is one of the oldest churches in Vienna, dating back to the 13th century. It is also one of the only examples of the Romanesque style in the city, which is known as the center of the Baroque world.

From the outside the church doesn't look particularly spectacular, however the inside is both beautiful and interesting. The church is formed by two aisles leading up to the high altar which is decorated by the Rocco sculpture, the "Fall of the Angels".

The unique feature of the church is its catacombs and crypts, where corpses and bony remains of wealthy Viennese are on display to the public.

Due to the special conditions inside the church, the bodies have effectively been mummified and can be viewed with the antiquated clothes that they were buried in.

The church is located near the Hofburg Palace and the Spanish riding school in the center of Vienna.
