In the jubilee year of Viennese Modernism we offer visitors to Vienna and residents alike an opportunity to discover the buildings that attract architecture aficionados from around the world.

The beginning of the 20th century was a time of change and renewal for Vienna. This unique epoch, on the cusp from Historicism to modern architecture, was marked by individuals like Otto Wagner and Adolf Loos. The walk leads from the Postal Savings Bank via the Looshaus on Michaelerplatz to the Wiener Secession, and ends in front of the Otto Wagner Pavilion on Karlsplatz.
