25 Nov - 23 Dec
Fri & Sat | 6:30pm | Capuchin Church
Get in Christmas mood with the most beautiful Christmas carols and festive music at Capuchin Church, location of the world-famous Imperial Crypt.
In the heated church the Christmas concerts span a majestic arc of festive trumpet music, selected texts and the finest Christmas carols - what a wonderful way to prepare for the approaching Christmas in a contemplative and joyful way.
Capuchin Church is centrally located near the State Opera in Vienna's city centre and is known for the Imperial Crypt, which served as the Habsburg burial site for centuries. Its modest interior is also its major asset - visitors are fascinated by the wooden furnishings.
Combo-Ticket: Combine your concert visit with the most famous crypt in the world, the Imperial Crypt. The burial place of the Habsburgs since 1618 lets you feel 400 years of Austrian and European history. Marvel at the tombs of famous rulers, such as Emperor Franz Joseph and his beautiful wife Elisabeth "Sisi", the impressive double coffin of "Empress" Maria Theresa and Franz I Stephan of Lorraine or the modest copper coffin of the reform emperor Joseph II. Last admission to the crypt is at 17:30, so it is wonderful to combine it with the concert.
