It's a must see venue for those who are interested in the secessionist work and it's a splendid building. My one disappointment was that there wasn't much to see inside which interested me. The sole permanent frieze was fine but the exhibition at the time really didn't appeal.

If you like Art Nouveau style, than it is a must to get to the church. It is located in the Psyhiatric Hospital. Otto Wagner was the architect behind this wonderful church. Most probably one of the most important Art Noveau churches in the world. Some mosaics and stained glass windows are from another big artist this period Koloman Moser.... More

This amazing historical church is one of the best sights of Vienna.İt is not as big as it is seen from the outside.İt is worth to pay a visit this beautiful masterpiece if you are in and around it.Recommended.

Very nice church in Otto Wagner Spital I would recommend for those who likes Art Nouveau style and want to visit place not crowded by turists. Beside the church there is nice view to Vienna. The hospital is not so far from Palace Schönbrunn.

Short version: Why to Go There? For the BEAUTY (eye-popping color and design) and for the HISTORICAL INTEREST (fascinating example of applied art in church designed for use by patients of turn-of-century reformist psychiatric hospital). How to Get There? Bus 48A from Dr.-Karl-Renner-Ring to Otto Wagner Spital/Psychiatrisches Krankenhaus or U3 to Volkstheater or Ottakring Station, then follow signs to Bus... More

One of the supreme pieces of world architecture. It condenses an understanding of space with the plastic arts of Fin de Siecle Vienna to create a marvelous building. The best building in Vienna!!!!!

It's not the easiest place to get to - bus trip and steep walk - and only open once a week for sightseers - but worth the effort. The church is a one-off, designed by an architect at the height of his powers. If you like Jugendstil/Art Noveau its well worth a detour.

If you have any feeling for turn of the last century Jugendstil Architecture, this church by the remarkable architect, Otto Wagner is a must see....one of his greatest masterpieces. Whats more, it has now been restored to pristine condition, gleaming white and gold, majestically placed on a hill outside Vienna. The only drawback is, it is a bit difficult to... More

Located in the quiet and green 14th district, the Kirche am Steinhof is not as centrally located as Stephansdom , St. Peter's and Karlskirche, but it's beauty and art nouveaux style is worth visiting. We went on a Sunday and had to pay a €2 entrance fee. Its stained glass windows, mosaic paintings and chandeliers are really impressive.
