Kirche am Steinhof, also called the Church of St. Leopold, is the Roman Catholic oratory of the Otto-Wagner-Spital in the area of Steinhof in Vienna, Austria. The building, designed by Otto Wagner, is considered one of the most important Art Nouveau churches in the world.
The church, situated 310 metres (1,020 ft) above sea level, dominates and forms part of the Steinhof Psychiatric Hospital; previous official title was Niederösterreichische Landes-Heil- und Pflegeanstalt für Nerven- und Geisteskranke 'Am Steinhof' (Lower Austrian State Healing and Care Institution for the Neurologically and Mentally Sick, 'Am Steinhof'). It is located on a hillside (the Baumgartnerhöhe) below the Galitzinberg in the 14th Vienna district, Penzing. It has a separate status as part of the surrounding hospital and does not form part of the Archdiocese of Vienna.

An absolute "must see". This hidden gem of Vienna is not something tourists often visit since it is a bit away from the city center, but is is worth visiting. The church represents jewel of Viennese secession style and the hospital area is a historic monument itself.Do walk around the green area, it is amazing and popular with locals. 48A bus goes from U3 Ottakring and stops just in front of the main entrance of hospital. Hospital grounds are public area and are open during the day.

Beautiful church from Otto Wagner, one of the outstanding Art Deco examples of Vienna.

Another pearl from Otto Wagner. We didnt get the chance to see it inside, thou the building is also quite an experience seen from the outside.

Probably Wagner's best work. If you are in Vienna over a weekend don't miss it. Sunday is best as it's open 12 to 4pm.

most underrated art deco/ jugendstil church. Together with Baumgartner Höhe constructed and built by Richard Wagner
