  • It is a fountain located in the municipal park. Though fountain, from his pedestal of something towards the basin has water. I think what fun, statues and fountains are scattered City Park, so take a look leisurely stroll one by one.

  • The Danube females fountain stands in the center of the Viennese City Park in close proximity to the monument to Emil Jakob Schindler. The Johann Strauss monument out is to walk in less than a minute here. The plant was designed in 1858 by the artist Hanns Gasser. The today's well but is a reproduction as the original in the 2nd World War was heavily damaged. The fountain consists of a pillar made of stone, on which stands the scantily clad female of the Danube. There are small fountain bowls, into which the water flows at the foot of the column. Conclusion: One of many works of art in City Park, which we took while strolling through the countryside on the outskirts. Not particularly exciting, but nice to look at.

  • The Danube Female Fountain (Donauweibchenbrunnen) is one of many monuments which can be viewed at Stadtpark in Vienna. This is a fountain monument originally created by Austrian sculptor Hanns Gasser in 1858. Badly damaged during WWII, the statue was replaced with the present stone copy in 1948. Here you see an elegant female figure known as the Danube Female, a mythical individual who was believed to have helped distressed fisherman against the flooding of the nearby Danube River. The figure stands posing upon a single column. At the bottom of the column are four small wells, which as expected were not in use during my late February visit. In the end, unlike the many stately busts and statue figures of Austrian composers, writers and artists scattered around Stadtpark, Donauweibchenbrunnen is considerably more classical in nature, shape, form and concept. It makes for a nice change while monument viewing at Stadtpark.
  • Nice Park but a bit too dirty.
