Neighborhood: 1st district - Inner City

As the Praterstra├če broadens out into the Praterstern junction, you will notice a splendid 16m high column topped by the statue of Admiral Tegetthoff, the Austro-Hungarian Empire's most glorious naval hero. The work of architect Karl von Hasenauer and sculptor Carl Kundmann, the column was built to celebrate Tegetthoff's 1866 victory over the Italians in the Battle of Lissa, with the columns of Place Vend├┤me and Trafalgar Square very much in mind.
