What You Can Expect
With your guide, head underground to explore the crypt below the church. Created in the 16th and 17th centuries for the burials of nobleman and wealthy Viennese, the crypt held more than 4,000 bodies, and due to the crypt’s ideal constant temperature, these corpses have been well preserved.
Next, follow your guide back above ground to visit the Michaelerplatz archaeological site, an excavation that uncovered a Roman settlement of soldiers’ homes from the Vindobona military camp. Your tour ends here, on the Michaelerplatz, so you’ll be perfectly placed to continue exploring Vienna on your own.
This was a very interesting and unique tour. The guide spoke English and German and was very thorough in her explanation of the Church Crypt and the history of the tunnels that were built over the years throughout Vienna. Our 14 year old daughter thought it was intriguing as did we.
an excellent, very friendly and informative guide showing us a world under vienna we never dreamed existed
Very informative we had the same guide for the Third Man tour - very enthusiastic, knowledgable and keen. The crypt was interesting as were the cellars.
This tour was amazing. We were blown away by the crypt and the bones, mummified bodies, coffins, etc. Our guide, Bridget was a, true delight.
Highly recommend this tour!
I really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was Christopher and he made it very interesting by providing us with many details regarding the underground tunnels. As expected we did get to see 3 well preserved corpses along with many coffins and bones.
Great tour, just the right size. Guide was fun and very informative.
This tour was Awesome! !!!!
I am a native Austrian and enjoyed the tour just as much as my American husband.
The tour is creepy and exciting and gets your imagination going of how life has been back in the day.
Our guide was super knowledgeable and was doing great to explain everything in german and english flawlessly.
I highly recommend this tour to everyone who wants to know abit more of history while getting creeped out a bit:)
A different side of Vienna is shown in this tour, but like some, no photos are allowed underground. This diminishes the tour as it would be good to have a photographic record for memories of where one travels.
Still a good tour, but could be better if photos were allowed.
Very interesting and exciting. The guide was very good and told us everything we wanted to know about the crypt.
