The area
Neighborhood: Inner City
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 center. 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.

Goose Girl Fountain in Vienna
Mar 2018 • Couples
Gansemadchenbrunnen (Goose Girl Fountain) is a late 19th century fountain located at the top of Rahlstiege, a historic staircase linking the upper Mariahilfer Straße and lower Rahlgasse in Vienna.

This fountain is the works of Czech sculptor Anton Paul Wagner. It is of a bronze female holding part of her dress in her left hand. There is a bronze goose standing at her right just below her right hand. The lady is peering downward and forward.

Below the Goose Girl is a pedestal with two more bronze geese standing upright with wings spread. Their mouths are spouts which spill into two small basins. Unfortunately, like all fountains in Vienna, Gansemadchenbrunnen wasn't turned on during my recent visit as it was too early in the year.

The Goose Girl Fountain is worth a couple minutes if you are passing through the area and enjoy viewing old monuments.
