 Entitled – Vienna. – The Prater-Stern. 

From a Photo by Stengel & Markert, Dresden.

Below the picture an inscription reads:

Vienna. – The Ring-Strasse, which, in conjunction with the Franz Josephs Quai, encircles the whole of the inner city, has an average width of 165ft.

Its length from the Aspern Bridge to the end of the Schottenring is two miles.

The new Exchange is in the Schottenring, and it is 300ft. long and 325ft. deep.

At the north end of the Schottenring is the Danube Canal, on the banks of which extends the Franz Josephs Quai, lined with fine modern buildings.

The Parade-Platz, near the Franzens-Ring, also contains numerous public buidings, including the Rathhaus and the Courts of Justice.

This part of the Ring-Strasse may be considered the finest in Vienna.

Between the Operngasse and the Karntner-Strasse is the Imperial Opera House, which seats 3,000 and is gorgeously decorated with paintings, frescoes, bronzes, and marbles.

The Karntner-Strasse ends at the Elisabeth-Brucke, which spans the Wien, a tributary of the Danube.

This bridge was opened in 1854, and is 90ft. wide and 140ft. long; eight marble statues adorn the parapets.

The Leopoldstadt is the second municipal division of Vienna, and it lies on the north side of the Danube Canal.

The chief street in this quarter is the Prater-Strasse, which is traversed by trams to the Prater-Stern, a great square from whence radiate two spacious streets which divide the Prater into three fan-shaped sections, the principal one of which – the Haupt-Allee – is the fashionable promenade of Vienna in the month of May, when the quadruple row of chestnuts is seen to the best advantage.

The Prater is a great forest, or park, of 4,270 acres, and was used by the Imperial Family as a hunting domain till 1766, when the Emperor Joseph II. opened it as a public park.
