Since Karlsplatz was restored as an ensemble in the late 1980s, the Karlskirche has garnered fame due to its dome in the form of an elongated ellipsoid and its two flanking columns of bas-reliefs, as well as its role as an architectural counterweight to the buildings of the Musikverein and of the Vienna University of Technology.

The church is cared for by a religious order and has long been the parish church as well as the seat of the Catholic Student Ministry of the Vienna University of Technology.
