Last year I visited the famous Ossuary Church in Kutna Hora, Czech Republic, and I thought that's it. Although the Czech one is far bigger, this one is attractive and unusual due to painted skulls. It is in the Church just above the main Lutheran...More

Located behind the Catholic Church on the hill is a small room full of skulls and other bones. Bodies were buried in the cemetery for short amount of time, then dug up to make room for new burials. The skulls were beautifully painted including names...More

Loads of skillfully painted skulls gathered together in a small space .... well, it was a new experience for us, quite unlike one has when visiting a cemetery.

The Bone chapel is something to see. Located in back of the grave yard. the story of the chapel is a must read.

To my opinion, it's not worth to pay to visit. You need to pay 1 to 2 EUR to enter. The room is about 10 square meters.

Visited this peaceful place today. 1200 skulls kept here. All beautifully designed by artists. Entry fee 1.50 for adults and 50 cents for a child. Very near to hallstatt city centre. Walkable distance from hotel heritage. We found the place good and felt peace there.

(2011) I was mesmerized by the decorations on the skulls in this bone room. It is well worth the hike to see this!
