St. Michael's Church (Michaelerkirche)

Michaelerplatz
1010 Wien

Located next to the Imperial Palace, the crypt beneath the church is of particular interest: Special climatic conditions ensure that the bodies interred there do not decompose. Around 4,000 people were laid to rest here from 1631 to 1784.
