The Rektoratskirche St. Karl Borromäus, commonly called the Karlskirche (German for 'St. Charles Church'), is a Baroque church located on the south side of Karlsplatz in Vienna, Austria. Widely considered the most outstanding baroque church in Vienna, as well as one of the city's greatest buildings, the church is dedicated to Saint Charles Borromeo, one of the great counter-reformers of the sixteenth century.
Located just outside of Innere Stadt in Wieden, approximately 200 meters outside the Ringstraße, the church contains a dome in the form of an elongated ellipsoid.

Smaller than the iconic St Stephens spires but an impressive structure and dome. Ensure you appreciate the carving on the two side towers. There is €8 to go inside for tours.

So far my favorite cathedral in Vienna. It's beautiful! I don't know how it is not better known in the world. Also, it has my favorite Christmas market when it's the season for it. My kids love the small playgrounds there too.

Sit on a bench and enjoy the fountain and the beautiful church. Feel free to explore the church and climb to the top.

Impressed me more than St. Stephens Cathedral. It has a large yard and the columns and the building is just fantastic.

Amazing Baroque church in Vienna. Beautiful paintings, relics, and gold plated ornamentation. We were there for a concert and the acoustics were stupendous.

Always worth to watch the former church from the Outside. Unfortunately some business companies bought that church and want an entrance Fee now. This is insane. Any church should Always be free to visit.

Worth a visit! Quite pretty, especially when the sun is setting and the church reflects in the pond.
