Otto Wagner Pavilion, Karlsplatz
© WienTourismus / Christian Stemper

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 Wien Museum Karlsplatz, 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).
