Interesting but in need of a clean up as was rather run down and dirty. It stands out and you can see was closed due to covid but still just above todays metro station and on the edge of resselpark. Interesting style and example of vienna secession architecture and a great work of otto wagner.

What a stylish subway station. It is still in use. It tells you something about the Viennese's love of architecture. Otto Wagner is one of their most cherished architects.

Public Transportation can have great architecture
Jun 2019
Otto Wagner was the premier Art Nouveau architect in Vienna. While he has great buildings in the city that you must see, he also was involved in city planning and public transport and designed some of the coolest, historic stations of the Vienna Metro. Karlsplatz is the station we visited most during our stay due to its critical junction and surrounding attractions. While today you can enter the station without using this structures at all. They remain as a tribute to their designer and importance of public transport. As you walk through the Karlsplatz you can't miss them. Take a few minutes to enjoy them and see the design of Wagner.

Beautiful architecture

Iconic building(s) but there’s graffiti on the outside and the building with the café could use a renovation. Either way, if you’re a fan of Otto Wagner, it’s a must.

Beautiful station.
Jun 2019 • Friends
Otto Wagner Pavilion Karlplatz ( Karlplatz Stadtbahn ) was designed by Otto Wagner and is a great example of the Judenstil style of architecture and is a building included in the Vienna Secession style as it meets all the criteria of that movement.
The designer ,Otto Wagner was the advisor to the commission of Vienna transport, opened in 1899 and the station was called Akademiestraße ,the actual building was earmarked for demolition but was saved due to the public outcry over the possible losing of such a beautiful building.
We passed this building most every day on our eight days holiday to this most beautiful of city's, made for some great photographic opportunities.
Easy to locate on Karlsplatz and most definitely well worth checking out.

Fine Vienna Secession architecture at Karlsplatz U-Bahn station
Aug 2018 • Couples
At Karlsplatz U-Bahn station is a pair of Otto Wagner Pavilions which are an example of Art Nouveau architecture but what makes them unique is that they were built for the Stadtbahn urban railway. The pavillion buildings were built in 1898 and of Jugenstil style in apple green, gold and white colours and were included in The Vienna Secession movement.

The Stadtbahn was converted to U-Bahn in 1981 and at the time the original station was meant to be demolished but it was decided that the station buildings would be kept. They were moved from their original position and moved 2 metres higher to their present location after the completion of the U-Bahn.

One of the buildings is now used by the Vienna Museum for exhibitions with an U-Bahn entrance at the rear and the other building is used as a café. The pavillions are a must see whilst in Karlsplatz.

Subtly placed little gem/old train station
Sep 2018 • Family
Karlsplatz has plenty to see and although this is one of the smaller things, Otto Wagner’s train station stands out as it sits above ground, and above the busy underground lines of modern Karlsplatz.

Iconic and worth seeing from outside
Jun 2018 • Solo
Just like many other buildings in Vienna, it was designated as an historic landmark (based on the information, the old buildings were renovated and reassembled after the construction of the U-banh. Currently the buildings were used as a cafe and exhibit space for Vienna Mjuseum. The station was open in 1899 as a light rail station and later converted to be U-Bahn station in 1981. The buildings above ground on Karlsplatz are a well-known example of Jugendstil architecture. It is located near Church of St. Charles and Karl's Plaza. The place is great for photos.

Beautiful former train station now a museum
Jun 2017 • Solo
The former train station named after its famous designer is an excellent example of turn of the century architecture and is part of the Wien museum. The building now houses exhibits on the life and works of the designer.

Worth a short visit.
