An expensive church visit

St Charles Church (Karlskirche) is one of the well known churches in Vienna. It’s of baroque style architecture and a pretty impressive one at that. It’s also the seat of the Catholic student ministry of the Vienna University of Technology. There is a lift on the inside that takes you to the dome of the church. It was quite disappointing, because it was inside and the views of Vienna were obscured by protective dirty windows and then protective window fencing.  Those who want to go inside will have to pay a hefty 8 euros per person. This is by far the most expensive payment of any church Hubs and I have ever been to in recent memory. Usually, you would just donate money at the entrance of most places of worship, which we usually do without a second thought. So was it worth it? I’d like to think so. I especially LOVED the frescoes and alter.
