Kirche am Steinhof

The church that is also called the Church of St. Leopold is one of the most famous Art Nouveau churches in the World. It is situated on the premises of the Steinhof Psychiatric Hospital, and especially built for the "needs" of mentally diseased (with toilettes and separated entrances for male and female patients).

 

Unusually the church lies on a North-South axis, at the centre-top of the hospital complex.

 

It was built in 1903-1907 by architect Otto Wagner.  Open to public at Saturdays 16.00-17.00.
