“Karlskirche is a Great Landmark”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

Just look around the area and the Karlskirche with it's columns lets you know where you are. Enjoyed the Christmas market here. They had a small petting zoo for the children as well as some activities for them- candle making was one. Not too far from Naschmarkt and served by numerous trams and the Ubahn.

“Vibrant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

This place is full of life. I just loved to walk around at nights. Very good for shopping. Some very good restaurants in this area. I walked around this place every night during our stay in Vienna.

“A lovely square.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

The square is lovely to visit during daytime, but it is STUNNING to visit after dark, when the Karlskirche is beautifully lit (do mind your belongings after dark, though, as pickpocketing is an issue there).
The square offers views of the Technical University, the Vienna museum, the Musikverein and, of course, the famous pavillions and Karlskirche.

“Nice Plaza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Karlsplatz is dominated by the St. Charles Church, which is very impressive. There is a round artificial pond in front of the church that adds to its beauty. There are benches around the plaza so one can relax and enjoy the view of the church.

“Love this place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

This place have a lot space, in summer you can have a Gellato Italiano for 1€ and there are some little food and drinks restaurants near the church.
You can get in to the fountain, there is people with kids playing, or with dogs or you can lay near the fountain in a big pillow to read, drink a beer or to take a nap.
