Karlskirche - St Charles Church, Vienna: 101 reviews and 193 photos


Much of the church is being restored during the summer season; so there was much scaffolding in the church hall...quite hard to take photos but nevertheless this picture shows the grandeur of the thanksgiving church; how much thankful is the Viennese royalty for deliverence from the plague in early 1700s.

I was particularly impressed by the semi circle space with beautiful fresco, which is limited by the organ loft at the backside and in the front by the main altar.

Address: Vienna's famous baroque church
