  • A Phenomenal Tribute to the Father of the Printing Press The lovely Johannes Gutenberg Monument is located near to the Embassy of Chile and St Stephan's Cathedral, and pays tribute to the impact of Gutenberg's introduction of moveable type to Europe. The revolutionary machine produced the Gutenberg Bible--the first important book to be mass-produced--and was central to the spread of scientific information, the development of the Reformation, the opening of the Renaissance, and the opportunity for regular people to learn.
  • The statue of Johannes Gutenberg is located at the Lugeck and Backerstrasse intersection in front of the attractive Regensburger Hof building, approx. 5 minutes walk northeast of Stephansplatz. The bronze statue is the work of Austrian sculptor Hans Bitterlich in 1900. Here the 15th-century goldsmith and inventor is bearded with hat and overcoat, standing and peering downward. Gutenberg is positioned atop a pedestal with reliefs carved into each side. In the end, it is a decent statue and worth viewing if you are in the area and enjoying seeing historical monuments and statues like this one of Johannes Gutenberg.
