  • Monument of a great inventor of his time-where else should this stand, if not in the park of the same name

  • You will find the Josef Ressel Monument at Karlsplatz in Vienna. Ressel was a German-Czech forester and inventor who is credited with having designed one of the first working ship propellers during the 1820s. This statue is the works of Austrian sculptor Anton Dominik Ritter von Fernkorn in 1863. Here you find Ressel, standing in formal attire with cloak. His left hand resting on a ship propeller while his right arm crosses his chest. The statue stands upon a pedestal with bronze inscription. It is an interesting monument and historical figure. Give it a few minutes to enjoy if you plan on viewing the monuments at Karlsplatz during your stay in Vienna.
  • This Park was named after him.
