This unique church sits at the top of a commanding hill on the edge of Vienna. It will surely be regarded as an important architectural site for centuries. It is a superb example of Austrian nouveau at the beginning of the 20th century. Do be advised that you can take the public bus up to the grounds (a vast hospital... More

Incredible architecture. Worth the bus ride. Shame the church wasnt open to be able to see interior or stained glass.

I believe I took more than 100 pictures of it's interior, and probably missed many things in it. You need at least a 1/2 hour to do this church viewing justice

Was a bit out of the city but direct from the center with Bus 48A from Dr Karl Renner Ring. About 20-25 Minute ride. A must see for any fan of Art-Nouveau. The church is truly beautiful and the locale (a hill with many trees, above a psychiatric hospital) is a nice change from the Churches in the historic center.... More

The architecture is wonderful, but it's a long trek to get out there and, for me, the pictures would have sufficed. If you're traveling from the center, you'll need a few hours.

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.
