This church is based in an ancient sanatorium for mentally ill people and was as far as I remember built to help those people. Now what a luxury - this is a full blown Art Deco style church of the beginning 20th century and an architecture jewel. Not so much visited by tourists because it is a bit off the... More

This revolutionary church of Vienna bears a name for its location, "Steinhof," located on a high hill with spectacular views of the city , although in the past decade its i called increasingly the "Otto Wagner Kirche," a long-in-coming tribute to Vienna's architect/engineer who not only built this church for a mental/pulminory sanitorium in an area that was then outside...

A wonderful secession masterpiece, light, airy, and uplifting. Highly recommended for architects and architecture buffs. Anyone else might be disappointed, because it is not a church, like other churches, you need to have these things under your skin in order to appreciate the charm and the novelty it posed more that 100 years ago. Note: This has always been the... More

If you are interested in the Art Nouveau or Jugendstiel architecture, you must go and see this. Aside from the style and stunning beauty, the history and background of the church is extraordinary. Try to get a knowledgeable tour guide to view not only the church but also the adjoining memorial gardens.

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.
