The basics

Free admission at the Church of St. Michael means it’s easy to stop by during opening hours, but to see the crypt it’s important to plan ahead—they’re only accessible on guided tours. The church itself offers tours of the crypt two days a week; reservations are only necessary for groups of six or more. To see more of Vienna’s underground, consider a tour that combines the Church of St. Michael crypt with other buried spots, such as the Michaelerplatz Roman ruins.
