Otto Wagner Pavilion, Karlsplatz

Art in Passing: Karlsplatz

One splendid example is the Stadtbahn Pavilion, that architect Otto Wagner built around 1900 for the Vienna City Rail, and where all elements can be found again which you have already encountered elsewhere in the footsteps of Gustav Klimt: floral ornaments, gold decoration, and attention to the smallest details.

Or Künstlerhaus, that institution that Gustav Klimt and his friends turned their backs on.

And the Vienna Museum Karlsplatz (the former Historic Museum of the City of Vienna), which houses some important works by Gustav Klimt, among them the paintings "Emilie Flöge," "Pallas Athene" and the early work "Interior of the Burgtheater" (1887).

      Guiding system for the visually impaired with special "leading stones" (grooves and knobs), which can be felt with canes or feet - for the passage between the individual artistic institutions on Karlsplatz (e.g. Künstlerhaus, Musikverein) and for crossing the Friedrichstrasse-Lothringerstrasse intersection (which has heavy traffic), the traffic lights have audible signals.
