Huge fountain in the center of Vienna. It is totally worth seeing if you are in the area. Another one of the beautiful monuments in the cities.

Quite big and nice fountain adjacent to the Soviet War Memorial. Fine place to relax. To all those who say it's not working: ofcourse it'll not work during winter months. Get your expectations right.

no reason to visit the Schwarzenbergplatz because of this! Go there because of the Palais, of Cafe Schwarzenbeg and the oldest McD in town, open 24hrs.

A prominent feature of the Schwarzenberglplatz was the large fountain, the Hochstralbrunnen. The large fountain had rocks displayed in the pool of the fountain. Sadly, the fountain was empty during our visit, which we assumed was due to the cold temperatures. It must look extraordinary...More

Of course this are not the fountains of the Belagio in Las Vegas, but they give a nice touch to the Schwarzenbergplatz with the monument to the Soviet Soldiers. Also turn around here and see the beautiful French embassy (just look for the Blue Blanc...More
