“Incredibly beautiful church with great views on the west hills of Vienna.”
Review of Kirche am Steinhof

Kirche am Steinhof
Ranked #17 of 586 things to do in Vienna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 February 2017

This church is a masterpiece of architecture, it is really breathtaking. They do charge for tours, and are only open a few times a week - but in my opinion the best sights are all free from the outside anyway. The hills behind the church are fantastic to take walks on as well.

Thank Thomas B

Absolutely worth a visit. Impressive architecture by Otto Wagner, just refurbished a short time ago. Very different from what you would expect a church to look like!

This church is one of the masterpieces of Viennese Jugendstil. Built by Otto Wager, the windows of Koloman Moser. It doesn’t get any better than this. Recently renovated to its original splendor, it is well worth the short trip from the city center.
Please note, that the church is only open for a few hours during the weekend. Check for details and plan accordingly. A 2 Euro entrance fee has recently been introduced. Kids are free.

This exquisite and extraordinary church, placed in the center of a former psychiatric hospital and center for pulmonology (built according to the plans of architect Otto Wagner and opened in 1907), is an absolute must for Jugendstil admirerers! Make sure you also attend the permanent memorial and exhibition to the History of Nazi-Medicine in Vienna, dedicated to the memory of more than 700 children who were tortured and murdered in the hospital during the Second World War.
To this day, this church serves nor only as a unique piece of art but also as a regular church (my husband and I got married there in 1990) that offers not only a stunning and absolutely unrivaled interior, but also a unique view over the entire city! Don't miss it!!! Opening hours of the church only Saturdays from 3 to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. as well as during mass (Sundays at 9:30 a.m.) - otherwise the church is closed for the public! Guided tours on request.
