Back in the center, we visited the Gothic Church Maria am Gestade, known as “Mary at the Shore”, which dates back to the twelfth century.
The polygonal bell tower is very nice and,inside, the panels of the Gothic altar are remarkably beautiful.
We went on towards HoherMarkt, a wide square which, above a covered walkway, hosts the Ankeruhr, the clock that every hoursshows different Viennese personalities.
In the square of the New Market (NeuerMarkt) we admired the Fountain of Providence (Donnerbrunnen) and the beautiful building called “house of the carriers” (BarockesBurgerhaus).
Finally, we reached Josefsplatz(Joseph’s Square) with the equestrian statue of Emperor Joseph II. Behind the Emperor you can admire the shining statues positioned on the roof of the National Library.
