Helene Kurzel-Runtscheiner explaining Fischer von Erlach's Baroque in Karlskirche

Coordinatrice Gabrielle Schallenberg

St Charles of Borromaeus, Fischer von Erlach´s architectural highlight with its elements of imperial grandeur is in perfect harmony with Rottmayr´s splendid frescoes. Our guide, Helene Kurzel-Runtscheiner, at right in the photo, explained their counter-reformation tendencies as she took us up by lift into the cupola. Afterwards she invited us for delicious refreshments generously at her home near by .
