  • Nice place to see in Vienna.
  • There is a very monument called the Austria Fountain at Freyung Square that is worth checking out if you are visiting this area of the city. The fountain is the works of German sculptor Ludwig von Schwanthaler and was constructed in 1846. Here you see a statue of a female figure with imperial robe, shield and sword. She is the personification of the Austrian Empire of the early 19th century. Below is a pedestal with tree branch and leave ornamentation, surrounded by four additional bronze figures representing the four main rivers which were within the realm of Hapsburgs at that time. These include the Danube, Elbe, Po and Vistula Rivers. The pedestal stands upon a rough, earth-like base from which water spouts into a shallow basin beneath. There are thin steps in the shape of a pentagon then surround the fountain allowing up close access to the fountain. In the end, this is a neat fountain to see even during winter months when it is not in operation. You can enjoy viewing the five bronze figures and easily imagine what it looks like during warmer months of the year when filled with water.
