The large beautiful square in Central Vienna is home to the Karlskirche and the Otto Wagner Pavilion and lies at the edge of Vienna's old town. The large square is planted with many trees and flower-beds and is a great place to relax and unwind.

In a city as magnificent as Vienna it is very difficult to find a bad corner and this square has some many nice details and points of interest. Full of life with good coffee shops and bars

Karlsplatz is yet another splendid square/garden in Vienna, with the impressive Karlskirche and the Otto Wagner Pavilion. The square has its own metro station and can also be reached by trams round the Ring. A stone's throw from countless other stunning buildings.

We were very disappointed with Vienna Christmas markets generally - they just fall short of Germany's across the board. But Karlsplatz resurrected the experience notably. It is set in a wonderful setting and it's the only market with a distinct atmosphere, it makes an effort....More
