Austria City Guide

„The Ornamental Revolution“ – Otto Wagner’s Art Nouveau & Vienna’s Secession



What would Vienna be without? Hardly an architect formed such a lasting impression in public space as Otto Wagner. This tour follows in his footsteps along the most remarkable buildings. We see the Post Office Savings Bank with it's distinctive facade, pass the MAK – Museum of Applied Arts – next to Vienna’s City park and reach Otto Wagner’s pavilions on Karlsplatz – former railway stations. In close proximity we reach one of the symbols of the Vienna Art Nouveau – the Secession building. And just after a few hundred meters onward we’ll find Art Nouveau facades along Vienna’s Naschmarkt, a traditional open-air market. Depending on the time budget, we can pay a visit to the Otto Wagner Hospital and the famous „Wagner Church of St. Leopold“, located in an elevated district of Vienna. The transport is optional: depending on group size we take a rented bus, public transportation or a taxi.
