Compared with other buildings dating from that time – such as the former Imperial-Royal War Ministry on the opposite side of the Ring Boulevard – Wagner’s style seems consistently modern and functional.
The façade is covered with weatherproof granite and marble, and also aluminum – new for its time – is used inside and out: for example, on the railings and the figurines on the roof, the fittings on the door and the warm-air dispensers in the hall.
The hall with its teller’s counters is open during the hours of the Post Office Savings Bank, which today is a private bank and is freely accessible.
