The church dedicated to Saint Leopold was built between 1903 and 1907 by the 63-year-old architect Otto Wagner, with mosaics and stained glass by Koloman Moser, and sculptural angels by Othmar Schimkowitz (1864–1947). Situated behind the Hospital high on the hill. A just deserved spot for a masterpiece. Times of visits are limited to the weekend and the bus takes... More

The church has recently been beautifully restored. If you are interested in early 20th century architecture, this is a must see. On weekends open in the afternoons, guided tour at 16:00. Combkne the visit with an extended walk in the nearby park "Steinhofgründe" and enjoy the fact that Vienna is surrounded by green area.

High on a hill, you have to take a bus and then it is a long walk through the hospital grounds to get to this church - but well worth it, especially if you are an admirer of Ottoman Wagner architecture. From the golden dome and ornamentation outside to the light fittings, confessional boxes and mosaics, Wagner had a hand... More

Designed by Otto Wagner, this church is one of the finest example of the Art Nouveau (more precisely “Jugendstil” or “Youth Style"). The mosaics and stained glass windows are simply beautiful. It is a bit out of the city center, but easily accessible by public transportation.

Beautifull church in Judenstil, especially the stained windows are special. Plan your visit ahead: it's only open on Saturday afternoons.

As a mosaic artist I really enjoyed visiting this wonderful church with its mosaics and stained glass windows which have all been recently restored . This church has very restricted opening hours, mostly one can only visit on Sunday afternoon. Be sure to check hours before going. Guided tours have different opening times. Easy to get to using metro &... More

A bit outside but you can get there with public transport. The whole site is a visit more then worth ! Great architecture by O. Wagner A shame if you are longer in Vienna and do not visit "Die Kirche am Lemoniberg", as it was called in the old days

Kirche am Steinhof is a Roman Catholic Oratory of the Steinhof Psychiatric Hospital in Vienna. Designed by famous architect Otto Wagner it is considered to be one of the most important Ant Nouveau churches in the world. A Must-See in Vienna.

This church is a true modern masterpiece and a timeless classic at the same time. Designed in all aspects by Otto Wagner it reflects he secessionist views of the early twentieth century Viennese artists including Wagner and Klimt among many others. The building is beautiful and a genuinely spiritual space. If you are a fan of the secessionists, art nouveau,... More
