We caught the 48A bus from Dr Karl Renner Ring. It stops opposite the hospital gates, turn left as you enter and walk up the flight of steps to the church. The church is open Saturdays and Sundays 3-5; the first hour is a talk (lecture) in German and costs 8 euros. Our German wasn't really up to it and... More

What a find! Out of the centre and off the beaten track but stunningly beautiful and in a serene location. You can't help but marvel at this Art Nouveau masterpiece. However, save your legs by catching the 47A or 48A bus by from outside Ottakring station.

Otto Wagners church at the Otto Wagner Spitale in Steinhof is a gem of a building. Beautiful proportions, exquisite materials and careful restoration in recent years make this a must see for Architecture enthusiasts. It's a bit out of the way but totally within reach by ubahn and taxi and it's totally worth a visit to this masterpiece.

The church has a very interesting style of art and architecture. It has amazing acoustics and we were able to listen to performers perform here. I would recommend finding out if the church is open since it remains shut sometimes.

A very interesting church to visit - getting there you feel like you are in the country side. Not central but do go there

We were among the lucky people who get the chance to also use the acoustics of this building: We were performers in their concert series "Vocumenta", a series that takes place every summer and has a very high profile program. This may be one of the best ways to experience the uniqueness of this church - coming for one of... More

This is really a must see for anyone remotely interested in art and architecture! It's really one-of-a-kind place in beautiful park and it's worth the effort of getting there. If possible, try to go there on a sunny day, to see the stained glass windows it its full beauty
