Impressive from the outside and a great example for the Barock style inside. The classic concert was very nice and a great experience in this beautiful setting. The concert was very good and reasonably priced.

We went to Mozart's Requiem Concert on May 8th. My husband forgot his glasses on the desk. Since we were taking photos and trying to catch good pics, we were the last ones that went out. When we realized approx. 10 mins later, we went...More

I would recommend to visit it during sunset and then visit the Soviet Memorial Monument right next to it where there is a beautiful fountain.

The quality of the internal finishes in this church make it well worth the admission price. Not for the faint-hearted is a vertiginous ride on the elevator to the very top of the dome for a unique close-up view of the amazing frescoes. Sensational!

The church is indeed very beautiful, but to be honest I have to agree with other travellers that 8 euros is too much to just enter a church.You can take the elevator to visit one of the towers inside the church (which by the way...More

This was one of my favorite churches in Vienna, beautiful inside and out. There is currently an elevator (used for restoration) that you can take to the top to see the dome up close. There is a U-Bahn stop really close if you're using public...More

I really enjoyed this church,specially because it is possible to see the frescos from very close and the acoustic is great. I can imagine that a concert must be great there.

You cannot even look inside the church without paying 8 euro. Ridiculous. The outside architecture is impressive; therefore, worth a walk by if you are in the neighborhood visiting the ugly Russian monument down the street.

Yes there are a lot of bueatiful churches in Austria. And after paying 8 euro and walking in and seeing a bunch of scaffolding you might be a little miffed. But ride the elevator up and being at eye level with the frescos is amazing....More

Karlskirche is in a beautiful location in Karlsplatz, not far from the Ring. It was one of the highlights of our visit to Vienna. I had looked at photos of the interior and feared that it would be too frothy with all the pink and...More

The fourth district combines elegant tradition with
contemporary style and relaxed living. More than a
dozen town palaces and churches such as St. Charles
Borromeo have added glamour to a neighbourhood known
for its traditional retail and crafts shops, taverns,
cafés. Wieden is also home to Naschmarkt, Vienna’s
largest street market. Many bohemian types have found
their way to Wieden: meet them in trendy cafés and

We are visiting Vienna and have booked Ave Maria Koncert in June. The church looks beautiful on the photos. We are keen to visit the church. I wonder is it possible to go up the lift to see the frescoes in the dome before the concert starts? Or Do we have to come early and buy separate entrance ticket to see the church before the concert starts? Thank you, regards, ken

Sorry, but as I did not go to the concert, I do not know the procedure in that case. Have a nice visit. Even though the elevator spoils the looks the church still is worth a visit and for sure the concert will be great... More
