The church is located above an old beautiful asylum and below the "Steinhofgründe", a well known beautiful recreation area where you can have the most wonderful pick-nicks on a hot summer day.
The church itself is unique, done in a special architectural style. It looks like a mix of an old Egyptian temple, a christian church and an art exhibition. Te chruch was designed by Otto Wagner and was built between 1904 and 1907. The glass mosaics in the windows were designed by Kolo Moser.

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.

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.
