Very interesting architecture. Like most of Vienna there are so many buildings to admire and this station building is a great example designed by Otto Wagner. Inside is a small exhibit showing his vision.

Worth going to see this. A station with character and cafe. Gives an idea of the style with which the 19 Century under took to build. A little suprise

Just a couple of minutes walk from St Charles Church is an interesting place to visit Karlsplatz Stadtbahn Station. In fact there are two pavilions [design by Otto Wagner] with one now being used as a café. They certainly are beautiful and if nothing else a chance to see subway stations, made of a steel framework with marble slabs mounted... More

Came across this pavilion by happy accident as I wanted to get a closer look at its architecture. Inside is a small exhibit dedicated to the vision of Otto Wagner and the architecture of early Vienna. Also happily being the first Sunday of the month entry was free as was entry to the Wien Museum. Exhibits annotated in both German... More

…don't miss the Pavillion(s) at Karlsplatz; they are just beautiful, if you love this period. All the Wagner buildings are stunning and the nearby Wagner Apartment exteriors at the Naschmarkt are also not to be missed. And while you're at the Karlsplatz, stop in at the lovely Karlskirche across the way.

It's a small building, so the inside is not as nice as the exterior. Good museum inside. The one like it, across the plaza, is a restaurant, so had had lots of modification, but it the "real" one is closed, make sure you see the restaurant one. The outside of both is pure Wagner - ornate, but simple and clean.

In addition to visiting Karlskirche (Charles Church) at Karlsplatz, its worth a few minutes visiting the historic Otto Wagner Pavilions at Karlsplatz Station. The pavilions, designed by Otto Wagner around 1899 are of Art Nouveau fashion, popular in that day and age. These days one of the building seems emptied while the other is a quaint cafe. Overall, we enjoyed... More

Otto Wagner's pavillions are undoubtedly unique. They have lovely greenish-grayish colors and the sunflower design is simply superb. The two pavillions are harshly contrasted with the more modern look of Karlsplatz. There is nothing to actually do in them (I think one of them is a café), but appreciating them for a couple of minutes while in the square ought... More
