As the Hapsburg Emperor Leopold I fled Vienna, he vowed to erect a monument if the Plague would end. The beautiful sculptures narrate the story with The Holy Trinity, angels, Leopold with his large Hapsburg chin and a victim of the Plague.
Beautiful monument to the plague on our favorite Viennese pedestrian street - The Graben.

In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The
Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
