Notes on the Geography of Austria : Vienna: Photo 1
Here's that core, as shown in a model built in the early 1850s by Eduard Fischer. It's in the Historical Museum of the City Of Vienna and shows the city just before its wall was removed later in the decade and replaced by the Ringstrasse or ring road. The Danube Canal is on the left. St. Stephen's Cathedral is far and away the dominant building in the city. On the right, the gardens of the Hofburg or Habsburg palace are prominent, with the palace to their left, marked by a prominent courtyard. Just inside the city wall and at the lower right, the tiny temple-form Theseum stands in a patch of trees.
