"Otto Wagner's Karlsplatz Station" Karlskirche & Karlsplatz Tip by yooperprof
Karlskirche & Karlsplatz, Vienna: 4 reviews and 6 photos
This must be the most aesthetic subway entrance in Vienna, and comparable to the finest anywhere in the world. Wagner went all out here and indulged in an elaborate use of ornamentation that is far removed from his normal "minimalism." The gold trimmings and the sunflower motif, though, are well-suited for this baroque square. There are actually two Wagner pavillions here; one is used as a summertime cafe, the other houses temporary art exhibits. (Now if only the city of Vienna would clean up the Karlplatz park to make it worthy of the architecture that surrounds it!)
