Wonderful architecture and a nice long walk

I walked to the church by following the tram track from central Vienna then back via Schonbrunn which was beautiful by night.

It is an experience completely different from visiting other places in Vienna. It is a bit far from the city center, so if you havent got a lot of time, you should probably skip this. However, if you do have time, it is really worth it.. The church was designed by the famous architect Otto Wagner, and it is really... More

This church on the grounds of a sanatorium is a masterpiece of early 20th century architecture and decorative arts.

We had a private interiors visit here - 24 seniors from England -and were 'blow away'. What a superb place so worth restoring. If you are an Art Nouveau fan you just must visit.

a little away from the city centre, a tram or underground plus a bus (47A or 47B) to the hospital and then a short walk up the hill to the church. The exterior looks amazing one of the best buildings in Vienna and a great view back down over the city too.

Beautiful in every detail. Nice environment too. Try to join the special tour on sunday. You can come here easy and cheap by public transport (tram): it is still in Vienna's city boundaries.

The Kirche am Steinhof on the grounds of the Otto-Wagner-Spital is one of the most amazing sites of Vienna, even though it is a little off the beaten track. Public transport does get you thjere from the city centre in approx. 35-40 minutes. It is a steep walk through the hospital grounds but the church as wel as the view... More
