The real highlight of the 14th-century Gothic Augustinerkirche (Augustinian Church) is not its pale, vaulted interior but a crypt containing urns with the hearts of 54 Habsburg rulers. The church hosts regular evening classical music concerts, and the 11am Mass on Sunday is celebrated with a full choir and orchestra. The website (www.hochamt.at/augustines_programm.php) has details. Sometimes on a visit you can catch the choir practising. The crypt is open on Sunday after the Mass – turn up around 12.30pm.
