Kirche am Steinhof, Vienna

4.7
Explore the stained-glass windows, mosaics, sculptural angels, and chandeliers at Kirche am Steinhof, the Roman Catholic oratory of the neighboring psychiatric hospital. The last commissioned work by Otto Wagner, the church is considered one of the most important Art Nouveau churches in the world. Wagner incorporated numerous features related to the church's function within the asylum, such as limited sharp edges, rounded corners, and the separation of the priest's area from that of the patients. Look up at the gold dome, covered with 2 kg (4.4 lbs) of gold plate over the copper roof during a structural renovation. Private tours in English can be booked in advance, but the church has limited hours, so call ahead to confirm. Note that the church is accessible by bus but requires a steep walk, so wear comfortable shoes.

  • You can get there by car, the ticket for 30 mins is free.. but i would park outside and walk. The dome is not always open. Beautiful architecture
  • Beautiful little church, located in a park on a hill. A must see in Vienna - my favorite masterpiece of Otto Wagner Art Nouveau architecture. Unfortunately not possible to go inside without pre-booking.
