How to Reach Karlskirche

The Karlskirche also goes by the name of Charles Borromeo church, is conferred the tag of an outstanding baroque church where two flanking columns coupled with a dome related to bas reliefs are present. In fact the entry to the church is free of charge. If you plan to stay near the Hofsburg, the how to reach Karlskirche mystery is solved, as it is going to take you hardly more than 15 minutes by foot.

The destination is open from Monday to Saturday and this is from 9 in the morning to 6 in the evening. In case of Sunday or public holidays the time tends to change. Most times it is open from 12 in the noon to 7 in the evening.

Some glorified attractions of the church

The steps along with the elevator are an impressive attraction of course. Such is the low profile of the church that most times than not people have stumbled upon the church by mere accident. If you do not plan to go inside there is a lovely pool where you can sit and spend the day.

Though it is an old church, it is a lot different from the other churches in the town. Normally instead of a crucifix here you can come across an image of Jesus ascending into heaven right from the front as well. There is an elevator inside the church from where you can make your entry all inside into the church at the same time. It is suggested that if you are scared of heights it is better not to venture into the place.

There are no second thoughts to the fact that this happens to be one of the major attractions in Vienna as with the help of an elevator you can reach the top and see the paintings. This is not the case with old churches to say the least.
