Kirche Am Steinhof Review

Otto Wagner's most exalted piece of Jugendstil architecture lies in the suburbs. On the grounds of the Vienna City Psychiatric Hospital, Wagner's design unites functional details (rounded edges on the pews to prevent injury to the patients) with a soaring, airy dome (stained glass by Koloman Moser). The church is open Saturday at 3 for a German-language guided tour (English tours can be arranged in advance). You may walk around the church for free between 4 and 5 pm on Saturday.
