Have visited this before as this time due to covid was closed. Still nice to see from outside, quite big area with a nice brand new information center and the main chapel and where the tragedy happened with some showrooms and then the candle chapel. When you come here a must to visit.

The small lodge is located in a large estate and is surrounded by beautiful gardens. It is here that crown prince Rudolph - heir apparent to the Austro Hungarian throne committed suicide thus altering the line of succession of the Empire and probably world history.

The lodge itself is pretty simple. The gabled entrance leads to the church of St. Joseph. To one side of the church is a small chapel. The chapel displays a statue of the Madonna with a knife in her heart. A picture of the kneeling Emperor is displayed on one side. It is in this room that the crown prince committed suicide.

The rest of the lodge is a museum dedicated to the suicide and displays the suicide note, the pistol used to commit suicide and other related artifacts. A tea pavilion is also located on the grounds.

The lodge is a must visit for people interested in Austrian history and the Mayerling incident.

A very big church which also has a museum but I don't think it has to havw a entrance fee for just visiting the church.

We took a tour from Vienna to visit Mayerling and Heiliger Kreuz Abbey, both located no more than 60 km away from the city. If you are not keen on finding out details about how this personal decision of Kronprinz Rudolph affected recent European history, don't go. The museum itself consists in a couple of rooms with pictures of facsimile documents, paintings and some personal effects owned by main actors of this drama. Chapel is small and intimate, prompting traveler to spend a moment of reflection. The natural landscape is very nice. For us it certainly was worth the time.

After visiting the monastery in Heiligenkreuz, our tour took us to this "museum" ... most of us thought that this stop was a waste of our time. The "museum" commemorates a murder/suicide scandal in the Hapsburg Dynasty. I think it was a result of too much in-breeding!

If you are into the story of the ruling family of Austria, this is a place to go. If not, it's still cool but quick.

A beautiful Church in a beautiful area in the Vienna Woods.

I'd recommend about 20 minutes for this visit. Skip the shop, there is nothing to buy.

Well we knew the bones of the story, but the (small) Museum and the associated church really brought it to life.

Just a shame that the family felt obliged to demolish the coach house immediately after the murder / suicide.

And as for whisking the body of Mary the mistress away in a coach, propped up between two servants, to pretend she wasn't dead ! Glad she appears to have found peace in her 4th coffin / resting place. What a saga.

We definitely would not have known about this tragic love story had it not been for our informative tour package in Grey Line to here, the nearby monastery and the Seegrotte. The drive in the fall was beautiful in itself, but learning how the last heir apparent to the Hapsburg Dynasty met his demise which ultimately led indirectly to the events surrounding the historical triggers and catalysts of WWI - now that was interesting indeed.

We visited this site as part of a tour that also included Heiligenkreuz abbey and the nearby gypsum mine and artificial underground lake. The hunting lodge at Mayerling is the site of the (apparent) double suicide of Crown Prince Rudolf, Emperor Francis Joseph's only son, and his teenage mistress Baroness Mary Vetsera on 30 January 1889. Shortly after the tragedy, part of the lodge was turned into a Carmelite monastery, where the nuns pray for the soul of the deceased. There is a detailed exhibit adjoining the chapel which explores the events, the evidence, the circumstances, and the theories concerning the deaths of Rudolf and Mary. Separate from the site is a gift shop. Somewhat paradoxically, the surrounding mountain landscape is utterly beautiful. Altogether this site is both informative and melancholy.

We had a private tour of this place after the nearby Monastery. We learned of the tragedy of Prince Rudolph. A solemn but lovely visit.
