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.
