The 14th District, Penzing, is an old district offering many examples of Jugendstil or Art Nouveau architecture (although not all of them remain in good condition). There are two notable instances of Jugendstil villas designed by Otto Wagner in Penzing. One of them is the Fuchs-Villa, which was owned by the painter Ernst Fuchs; it is now an exhibition space for his art.

By and large, Penzing has the feel of a suburban district, particularly in the eastern part, which is closest to the city centre (Innere Stadt). There you will find a lot of old suburban residences.
