The Capuchin Crypt, also well known as "Imperial Crypt" or "Imperial Burial Vault", is the burial place of the emperors and empresses of the house of Habsburg and their families, with artworks that reflect more than four centuries of Austrian and European history.
In the course of time the crypt was enlarged several times by the most famous artists of their days to house the splendid shaped sarcophagi. Power and grief, evanescence and vanity, death and resurrection are the dominating issues.
