Karlskirche dome

It is not often you get to see the dome of a church from upfront. If you visit Karlskirche in Vienna you can do just that. They have built a scaffolding platform right all the ay to the top of the church, If you go up in a rickety lift and them climb about 3 fights of stairs, you can admire the artwork and architectural detail from close up (just don’t look down).

It is a wonderful experience, so give yourself some time for the climb.

This is the same church in which we listened to Mozart’s Requiem a few days later.
