Karlskirche Church - Vienna

Karlskirche is a Roman Catholic parish church, and a single sacral building with a huge dome. It was the last work of the famous Baroque architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach, and it was his son Joseph Emanuel Fischer von Erlach who finished it in 1739. The church is dedicated to Charles Borromée and the little Borromée museum (Mueseo Borromeo) exhibits a collection of the Bishop of Milan’s travelling clothes. Something which should certainly not be missed is the altar which is magnificent after its recent renovation, as well as the beautiful frescoes by Johannes Michael Rottmayr, which cover 1250m² and illustrate the glorious life of the church’s named saint.
