Address
Neighborhood: Wieden
The fourth district combines elegant tradition with contemporary style and relaxed living. More than a dozen town palaces and churches such as St. Charles Borromeo have added glamour to a neighborhood known for its traditional retail and crafts shops, taverns, cafés. Wieden is also home to Naschmarkt, Vienna’s largest street market. Many bohemian types have found their way to Wieden: meet them in trendy cafés and bars, shop alongside them for vintage items, enjoy Wien Museum’s and Kunsthalle’s modern temporary exhibitions, and hang out with the bees at Vienna’s most beautiful urban garden, Karlsgarten.

Otto Wagner was the premier Art Nouveau architect in Vienna. While he has great buildings in the city that you must see, he also was involved in city planning and public transport and designed some of the coolest, historic stations of the Vienna Metro. Karlsplatz is the station we visited most during our stay due to its critical junction and surrounding attractions. While today you can enter the station without using this structures at all. They remain as a tribute to their designer and importance of public transport. As you walk through the Karlsplatz you can't miss them. Take a few minutes to enjoy them and see the design of Wagner.

Interesting but in need of a clean up as was rather run down and dirty. It stands out and you can see was closed due to covid but still just above todays metro station and on the edge of resselpark. Interesting style and example of vienna secession architecture and a great work of otto wagner.

At Karlsplatz U-Bahn station is a pair of Otto Wagner Pavilions which are an example of Art Nouveau architecture but what makes them unique is that they were built for the Stadtbahn urban railway. The pavillion buildings were built in 1898 and of Jugenstil style in apple green, gold and white colours and were included in The Vienna Secession movement.

The Stadtbahn was converted to U-Bahn in 1981 and at the time the original station was meant to be demolished but it was decided that the station buildings would be kept. They were moved from their original position and moved 2 metres higher to their present location after the completion of the U-Bahn.

One of the buildings is now used by the Vienna Museum for exhibitions with an U-Bahn entrance at the rear and the other building is used as a café. The pavillions are a must see whilst in Karlsplatz.

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.

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 on the exterior. Magnificent.

What a stylish subway station. It is still in use. It tells you something about the Viennese's love of architecture. Otto Wagner is one of their most cherished architects.

The former train station named after its famous designer is an excellent example of turn of the century architecture and is part of the Wien museum. The building now houses exhibits on the life and works of the designer.

Worth a short visit.

Otto Wagner Pavilion Karlplatz ( Karlplatz Stadtbahn ) was designed by Otto Wagner and is a great example of the Judenstil style of architecture and is a building included in the Vienna Secession style as it meets all the criteria of that movement.
The designer ,Otto Wagner was the advisor to the commission of Vienna transport, opened in 1899 and the station was called Akademiestraße ,the actual building was earmarked for demolition but was saved due to the public outcry over the possible losing of such a beautiful building.
We passed this building most every day on our eight days holiday to this most beautiful of city's, made for some great photographic opportunities.
Easy to locate on Karlsplatz and most definitely well worth checking out.

Karlsplatz has plenty to see and although this is one of the smaller things, Otto Wagner’s train station stands out as it sits above ground, and above the busy underground lines of modern Karlsplatz.
