Address
Neighborhood: Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.

We were heading to Gasthaus Hansy and couldn't help but see the hugely impressive Tegetthof Denkmal .
Constructed to honour Wilhelm Von Tegetthof ( 1827 _ 1871 ) who was an Austrian admiral who commanded the fleet of the North Sea during the Second Schleswig War ( 1864 ) and the Austro Prussian War ( 1866 ) and widely acknowledged as the premier naval officer of the 19th century.
The column is 11 metres high ,atop the column is the statue of Tegetthof crafted by sculpure Carl Kundmann,the column was erected in 1886 .
It's an eye catching column, finely detailed well placed on Vienna's Praterstern which is the largest traffic junction in the city.
Easy to locate on Praterstern and most definitely well worth checking out if your in the area.

Tall statue if a famous Austrian in the middle of a very busy traffic island, only worth a look if you happen to be close by, it can be seen on the way to the Ferris wheel as it is close by

What John Paul Jones did for American revolution almost hundred years before, Tegetthof did for Hapsburg empire, with bravery, wits and like always with some luck coming in the right moment. This man deserves respect so monument is the right thing. If interested more...Google may help You (interesting story of the battle of Lissa).

This monument sits at the end of Praterstrasse and is a memorial to an Austrian admiral who won a sea battle and died in 1871. It is quite impressive and is a rather dramatic representation of heroic deeds. It is currently under going restoration and the lower part is not visible due to erection of safety barriers.

On our Vantage River Cruise city tour, we went by this monument. It is situated on Vienna's Praterstern, the largest traffic intersection of the city and is dedicated to this accomplished Austrian naval commander. It was finished in 1886. His picture was on an Austrian postage stamp in 1935, had 3 ships named in his honor and in 2004 a 20 euro coin showed his picture.

Situated in the middle of the roundabout at Praterstern. Very impressive monument of the father of the Austrian Navy, even had a class of Dreadnought battleships named after him. A superb model of which is in the Aistrian Army museum in the naval section.
