Kirche am Steinhof

Designed by architect Otto Wagner in the early part of the 20th century, the Kirche am Steinhof is the Roman Catholic oratory of the Steinhof Psychiatric Hospital. Also known as the Church of St. Leopold, the structure stands on the Baumgartnerhöhe, below the Galitzinberg, in Vienna’s Penzing district. Kirche am Steinhof contains a number of interesting interior features to accommodate psychiatric patients who attend religious services there, including a doctor and emergency staff, special emergency exits, chairs with no sharp edges, and a dispenser for hygienic reasons instead of a basin for holy water.

  • Enjoy the brilliant reflections off the Kirche am Steinhof’s golden dome, covered with two kilographs of gold plate, which can be seen from afar, and gave rise to the Viennese nickname of Limoniberg, or Lemon Mountain, for the hill where the church stands, in Vienna.
  • Enjoy the church’s beautifully-stained glass windows by Koloman Moser, taken out of Vienna and placed in the Czech Republic during World War II for safekeeping and returned to their rightful place in the 1950s.
  • Take a guided tour of the interior on Sunday afternoons to get the most out of your visit.

Thanks to its association with the Stanhof Psychiatric Hospital, Kirche am Steinhof is easily accessed by public transportation. Visitors can take bus routes 47A, 48A, and N46, and alight at the Otto-Wagner-Spittal. From there, the church is a short walk. The church is close to Vienna’s Westbahnhof train station, an approximately 15-minute voyage by auto. Westbahnhof has rail service to Western Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and Hungary, as well as connections to many other major European cities. Vienna-Schwechat Airport offers flights to most major European cities. The City Airport Train connects the airport to City Centre in 16 minutes.
