Vienna of the turn of the 20th century was a cradle of culture, of great intellectual innovations in music, philosophy, economics, the arts, architecture, and design. Freud and philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, writers Arthur Schnitzler and Franz Werfel, musicians Schoenberg and Gustav Mahler, were all at the forefront of their fields and they all lived in Vienna. It was the birthplace of Zionism, and with the founding of the Secession in 1897 and the Wiener Werkstätte in 1903, Vienna was becoming established as one of the leading and most innovative European centers of the arts. What I most like about visiting Vienna is the immense number of buildings by Otto Wagner, the father of modern architecture which are so well-maintained an well-preserved, allowing us to experience Vienna of that magnificent period: the STainhofkirche, his own modernist villa, the Karlsplatz Station, the Majolica House, and his Pavilion Allerhochsten Hofes, just to mane a few.
