“Gesamtkunstwerk indeed”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

I've longed to see this building, one of the greatest architectural achievements in European history, for years. It's surprisingly hard to find, but ... Wow...Otto Wagner designed every inch of this building, even the chairs and tables, and it is all there and all original. For a building opened in 1906, it's wonderfully modern, open, spacious...you finally understand the German expression "gesamtkunstwerk," a total work of art. Awesome.

“Glorious and fascinating architecture”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Inside and out, this building is a must. During the week, the post office savings bank operates out of here, so if you want to visit when the locals aren't doing their business in the main hall, Saturday morning is a good time to see the harmonious proportions of the building. The small museum at the back of the hall gives access to an interesting exhibition space. Unmissable if you have any interest in 20th century architecture.
