Austrian Post Savings Bank by Otto Wagner

Austrian Post Savings Bank

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.

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Otto Wagner's death in 2018 and the exhibition "Post Otto Wagner" at the MAK, the WAGNER:WERK Museum Postsparkasse, which is housed in the Austrian Post Savings Bank, will be freely accessible again from May 30 to September 30, 2018 (Mo-Fr 10.00 am - 5.30 pm). The museum provides an accomplished overview of Otto Wagner's extensive oeuvre.
