The basics

For an overview of the Viennese churches, private houses, and landmarks like the Russian Embassy and monumental Postal Savings Bank on the Ringstrasse designed by one of Vienna’s premier architects, visit the Otto Wagner Pavillon Karlsplatz (originally known as the Karlsplatz Stadtbahn Station) as part of an art nouveau tour of Vienna. Such tours also include other highlights like the Secession Building, home of Klimt’s “Beethoven Frieze”. Otherwise, stop here independently or on a hop-on hop-off bus tour of Vienna’s top attractions.

Art Nouveau Architecture in Vienna

Vienna is known for its unique offshoot of the Art Nouveau movement known as the Vienna Secession, of which Jugendstil is the most famous style. Otto Wagner was one of the main proponents of this movement, along with architect Joseph Maria Olbrich and artist Gustav Klimt. The best examples of this style in Vienna include the Secession Building and Wagner’s landmark apartment building at Linke Wienzeile, overlooking the Naschmarkt.
