Karlsplatz is one of the most beautiful squares in Vienna. It is dominated by Charles church, which is one of the top attractions in the city.

It would be difficult to explore Vienna without arriving at Karlsplatz on several occasions. It is a large town square and one of the most significant transport hubs in the city. We first came here to catch the U-Bahn out to Schonbrunn but crossed the...More

during the flight to Vienna we knew of this market at Karlsplatz in relation to the possibility to enjoy oysters. Thanks to Irina! The middle restaurant in French style is better among others (no fish smell and interesting design)

Karlsplatz is an extremely calm and peaceful place where you'll find a lot of couple sitting by the pond. Karlsplatz is the hub of activity in Vienna. Karlsplatz is where the christmas markets are set up. The underground metro line is very close.

As I sat here in the early evenings of a summer day, I was struck by how peaceful the place was. Not as many people as I thought, but still enough. Couples by the pond as the Karlskirche's reflection danced over the waters. Cyclists whizzing...More

Large sprawling train station that connects all of Vienna. Nearby shops and restaurants. Wonderful and lively Christmas market during the holiday season. One of a few markets that consolidates the mulled wine, beer, and liquor kiosks in a few areas of the market. Definitely fun,...More

get the U2 underground to here and you can walk to all the main sites within 20 mins. Nice park in it's own right too.

It is a nice, very spacious square with a nice view spreading from Secession to the Karlskirche. There is too much traffic around it though to call it really pretty.

Just outside the Vienna ring, very accessible by public transit, huge public space adjacent to Karlskirche. It was a very nice Christmas market.

Your posting was quite a while ago. Is the playground still there? Is it it still a safe enough area for children to play in? We intend on seeing the Secession Building and Karlskirche, so a little playground time for the little one would be enjoyed.
