…don't miss the Pavillion(s) at Karlsplatz; they are just beautiful, if you love this period. All the Wagner buildings are stunning and the nearby Wagner Apartment exteriors at the Naschmarkt are also not to be missed. And while you're at the Karlsplatz, stop in at the lovely Karlskirche across the way.

It's a small building, so the inside is not as nice as the exterior. Good museum inside. The one like it, across the plaza, is a restaurant, so had had lots of modification, but it the "real" one is closed, make sure you see the restaurant one. The outside of both is pure Wagner - ornate, but simple and clean.

In addition to visiting Karlskirche (Charles Church) at Karlsplatz, its worth a few minutes visiting the historic Otto Wagner Pavilions at Karlsplatz Station. The pavilions, designed by Otto Wagner around 1899 are of Art Nouveau fashion, popular in that day and age. These days one of the building seems emptied while the other is a quaint cafe. Overall, we enjoyed... More

In addition to visiting Karlskirche (Charles Church) at Karlsplatz, its worth a few minutes visiting the historic Karlsplatz Station, a beautifully decorated subway station, originally opened in 1899. The reason to stop here is to see the architecture of the outside buildings of the station, which were designed by Otto Wagner in the Art Nouveau fashion of that day and... More

Otto Wagner's pavillions are undoubtedly unique. They have lovely greenish-grayish colors and the sunflower design is simply superb. The two pavillions are harshly contrasted with the more modern look of Karlsplatz. There is nothing to actually do in them (I think one of them is a café), but appreciating them for a couple of minutes while in the square ought... More

Vienna has some great examples of art nouveau architecture and the underground stations at Karlzplatz are examples of Otto Wagner's work. One is a pavilion to his work and the other is a cafe.

The architecture of the station was worth walking over to check this out. Fun to see the beauty of the old station from the outside.
