Charlie's Church, located on the south side of Karlsplatz, is a baroque church building with a green oval dome. The sides of the church are engraved with bas-relief columns and are very delicate.
The church is chargeable, 8 euros / person. There is a waiter who sells concert tickets at the entrance of Charlie's Church. The price is relatively high. I think it would be enough to feel it once in the Golden Hall.
The entrance to the church is Karl Square. It is quite deserted in the morning. It is very lively at night when there is a Christmas market.
This Karl church, one of the most eye-catching Baroque church buildings to the north of the Alps, has a Roman-shaped oval dome of up to 72 meters. In 1713, the Holy Roman Emperor Carl VI announced that if a terrible plague could stop him, he would build a church, and when the plague ended, the emperor's promise would be fulfilled. There is a large fountain at the entrance of the church. There is a park next to the pool. There are many small cafes where people sit and chat, read books and rest.
Come to the interior of the church, the front is the style of the ancient Greek temple, the two side rooms are in the style of Italian Renaissance. The overall decoration is gorgeous and solemn, and the religious murals of the dome are very realistic. In order to let visitors see the exquisite scrolls of the circular vaults, scaffolding is set up here, and visitors can take the elevator directly to the top and enjoy the gorgeous dome murals up close.
