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.

Amazing, beautiful uplifting Arts and Crafts design, full of light. Otto Wagner produced a masterpiece. It was well worth the steep climb to reach the church.
