This masterpiece of Jugendstil! Very good local guide. Far from crowded, there are not many tourists. Atmosphere of magnificent beauty in the psychiatric hospital! One of the most impressive locations I've visited.

The Steinhof church is a sight of its own (which looks great even from very far away, for instance from Hietzinger Friedhof, a cemetery in the 13th district), though unfortunately the inside is most often closed.

The church is done in spectacular Art Nouveau Architecture. It is set on a high hill overlooking the City. It is a bit out of the way but worth the trip.

If you visit thischurch, you willunderstand that the Viennese people have another relation to death. They seems tosee death as part ofthe life - soitmust be excellentlysurrounding there as well. And the architecture of that church is formative for the beginning of the 20th century!
