The area
Address
Neighborhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

Quiet, free museum with stunning architecture
Feb 2020
I hadn’t heard of Otto Wagner till I was coming to Vienna for a holiday. Our Airbnb had an article on the post office and how Otto became the winning architect to design a new building for the Viennese. This was so worth the visit as a small, free museum is tucked away to the left once you enter the main space. There is a film that runs 45 mins to an hour I think. It’s in German but visually I got a good overview of who Otto was and what he did in his lifetime with the design and realization of the most beautiful buildings in Vienna. Highly recommend this to be on your itinerary.

Fantastic building
Mar 2019 • Couples
Luckily we were here exactly for the opening of the FotoWien exhibition which was a fantastic event.. also thanks to this impressive and beautiful building! We will also come back in the future to see what kind of events will take place here. Also the environment invites for a visit with it’s nice restaurants and facades. Well worth a visit. Near Metro stations ‘Stuebntor’ or ‘Schwedenplatz’. Great architecture!

A post office revolutionizes architecture
Jan 2019 • Couples
The Postsparkasse building in Vienna, built by Otto Wagner in 1903, revolutionized architecture in Vienna. You need only compare it with the nearby buildings, especially the pompous ministry building facing it at the other end of the park, to feel what a revolution this must have been. The post office building houses a museum (entrance is free) dedicated to Otto Wagner and his building. There's a good documentary (in German only) about his life and work generally. He designed everything in the Postsparkasse - even down to the chairs and tables used. And it's all there to see, along with plans. Well worth a visit.

One of Vienna's hidden highlights
Dec 2018 • Solo
It is one of the symbols of the city even if just few people can understand this kind of art.
The huge building was built at the beginning of 19th century after Georg Coch's return from England where he learnt the importance of creating a system for savings.
The first thing you notice apart from the big square entrance is the roof.
The museum inside the building is free in the afternoon in working days.
The film at the entrance is Interesting and it is a good Introduction. Then, you can walk inside and see the forniture used at the time.

If you have time and are Interested in Jugendstil you have to go there. I am glad to have finally visited it!

Our grandson is in college studying to become an architect. When he found out we were going to be in Vienna, he told us about some interesting buildings we might enjoy. The Postsparkasse was his favorite. We shared his enthusiasm after going through this beautiful building. It was fun taking lots of pictures inside the lobby and the details outside the building for him. Grandma and Grandpa did their homework!

if you are an art deco fan, you will love it!

this is free to go in the lobby. it only takes a few minutes and is centrally located. the building is gorgeous! an architectural gem inside and out. while we were there, all car and foot traffic was stopped on the square. a director and his assistants had a huge drone and they were filming the facade of the building. that was fascinating to watch. they took wide shots and then guided the drone to take close ups of the details. hopefully, maybe i will see this footage in a documentary some day. pop your head in to see the lobby. it is no longer a post office, but it is nice that we were allowed inside for a peek.

Architectural gem

From architectural standpoint - quite a find. Simplicity and style of the building is just great. Easy to find, near the Ministry of War.
Lovely garden in front of it.
