Karlskirche, Vienna Reviews
St. Charles Church, at 72 m with it's high green copper dome, is located on the south side of the old city of Vienna just outside the ring and is considered one of the most beautiful buildings in Vienna. It was built between 1716 and 1737.There is a sculpture in the pool in front of the Church which was created by Henry Moore. You can use the elevator that will take you right into the sphere of the dome. From there you can climb to the top to get a fantastic view of Vienna. Entrance fee is €8. Also in the church there are music concerts held during the evenings.
Very pleasant place on a nice Friday evening. Calm atmosphere and easy going people. Go to hangout and relax with your loved once. Can't be noisy, but for peace and quite. Best to visit around 9 pm. Close to Karlplatz train station. Next to museums as well.
Karlskirche is a really beautiful Baroque style church located on the south side of Karlsplatz really easy to get there by metro. The construction from 17’s century has a kind of fountain in front where makes a mirror of the church and in a sunny day it’s just breathtaking and you will get really beautiful pictures. We visited during Spring 2017 and there was a construction to renovate part of the church inside, so probably you will check it out in our pictures. There is a small entrance fee to visit the church that we paid, it’s around $ 8 euros per adult and probably you will check all prices in their website and open hours. We think it was worth to pay to see all the Sacred Art inside, because there are lots of amazing details and the price included the “Panoramic” view that you could see getting an elevator inside of the church. We can tell the truth, we liked the experience to get a kind of elevator to the top of the church, but the Panoramic view is not that great because is through the church windows that are not that clean up there, but overall it was a nice discovering! Recommended: Yes, beautiful historic church from outside and inside.
Absolutely stunning. If you want photos, I’d recommend visiting later in the day around dusk as the sun back-lights the church in the morning and early afternoon.
Nice church, I went to a Vivaldi concert and the sound inside the building was amazing. You should check for stand up tickets, they are cheaper (around 12€) and you can get an amazing experience.
