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

Very very recommendable, try to get a guided tour there! And spend a little more time to walk through the park around.

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.

Otto Wagner and the Wienerwerkstaette at its finest. No sacred interior in the world from this time period is comparable.

The fastest way to go in (if you dont have a car) is to use subway line 3 and go to the Endstop "Ottakring". Then take the bus 48A direction "Baumgartnerhöhe", go off at "Otto-Wagner-Spital". It takes about 10 minutes by foot uphill, through the hospital path. Church itself is unique, inside not much interesting (for the price of 8€... More

This is one of the most beautiful of all art nouveau buildings. Its outside structure is stunning, but when you go inside and see the gold around the altar, the mosaics, and Moser's superlative stained glass, you realise you are in the presence of something rare and wonderful. It's a bit of a trek out of the centre of Vienna... More
