Stadtbahn Pavillons information
Peeking above the Resselpark at Karlsplatz are two of Otto Wagner’s finest designs, the Stadtbahn Pavillons. Built in 1898 at a time when Wagner was assembling Vienna’s first public transport system (1893–1902), the pavilions are gorgeous examples of Jugendstil, with floral motifs and gold trim on a structure of steel and marble.
The west pavilion now holds an exhibit on Wagner’s most famous works, the Kirche am Steinhof and Postsparkasse, which fans of Jugendstil will love. The eastern pavilion is now home to Club U.
