Absolutely worth a visit. Impressive architecture by Otto Wagner, just refurbished a short time ago. Very different from what you would expect a church to look like!

A few years ago, I attended a meditiation session with chanting in the church, on a weekday. The current website of the church does not list any such event. Are the meditations no longer being held there?
