This is a commemorative plaque to mark the house where Christian Doppler stayed between 1843 and 1847. The house is a private house and there’s nothing there concerning the physicist. The plaque is made of bronze and has a relief sculpture of Doppler in portraiture. And engraved with words related to his stay in Prague.

It’s certainly not a must-see, nor even if visiting the Old Jewish Quarter. I did physics and fully appreciate the work he did, along with Hippolyte Fizeau on our understanding of the Doppler Shift, especially on astronomy. Plus one just because I love physics.
