A Jugendstil ("art deco") church built for the inmates and workers of an insane asylum. It is exquisite, because its architecture and interior design are in the same style. It's only open on weekends, but it's well worth planning your trip so that you can...More

Well worth the effort of a 30 minute trip on bus 48A and a 10 minute uphill walk, the church sits on top of a hill behind a hospital complex. Four golden angels protect the enry (e5 or e3 for oldies) but the interior explodes...More

not easy to get to this extraordinary church as it is somewhere outside the city. However, it is worth to go there, a real hidden jewel. We could not enter the church because it looks like to be open on Saturday only.

Eye-catching Otto Wagner architecture. For us, the exterior was stunning and one couldn't help the certain intrigue with the marble architecture. This beautifully domed structure is small, the history provided is informative and the architect is Wagner. If travelers have the time, the beautiful, unique...More

An architectural gem on the outskirts of Vienna. Certainly worth visiting. Stunning exterior and interior. You can combine a visit to this church with a walk in the Vienna Woods.
