This is one of the most beautiful of all art nouveau buildings. Its outside structure is stunning, but when you go inside and see the gold around the altar, the mosaics, and Moser's superlative stained glass, you realise you are in the presence of something rare and wonderful.
It's a bit of a trek out of the centre of Vienna (the 48A bus gets you to the door) and you have to walk up a steepish hill to it, but I can't imagine many people being disappointed. (Follow signs to the Kirke.)
Having difficulty following Viennese German, I used the one-hour (yes really!) talk that accompanies your so-called guided tour to feast on the interior. There's actually no guided tour at 3 on Saturdays, just this very long talk, but it's a small price to pay.
It's only open for an hour or two each week, so check the Wien website for details. If you do only a couple of things in Vienna and like this style of architecture, make the effort to visit the Steinhof.
