Karlsplatz, Vienna

#75 of 715 in Things to do in Vienna
Pause to enjoy the bustling metropolis at Karlsplatz, one of Vienna's hubs of activity. This lively square surrounded by historical buildings stands immediately next to the U-Bahn subway station. Of particular interest is the picturesque old subway station, preserved despite its retirement. Note its intricate and elegant design featuring gold accents, hand-painted details, and an arched roof--true to the Jugendstil architecture style. The square is also home to a large water pool, the Vienna city museum, and Karlskirche--a magnificent 18th-century Baroque cathedral that towers over the city square. Stroll the large park and stop at one of the many restaurants and cafes in the area for a bite to eat. You might also catch one of the local events hosted on the plaza.

  • Please do not simply go over the Charles square. Please refer the Technical University are alone, before you rush continues.

  • This huge square is both day and night a meeting place of the Viennese and tourists. Here is the Park of Resselpark and Karlskirche. A show not to be missed in two variants: night and day.

  • Beautiful viennese square located almost in the center of town, lined with benches and with beautiful Fountain, surrounded by some beautiful buildings and monuments, primarily the Karlskirche, dedicated to San Carlo Borromeo. Particularly striking during the Christmas season with a nice Christmas coming out a little from the usual canons of Christmas market.
