Josefsplatz

Interesting
This well-proportioned square, with an equestrian statue of Josef II in the centre, is one of the finest in Vienna. It resembles a Main Courtyard and is framed on 3 sides by several wings of the Hofburg whose façades were harmonised by Pacassi in the 18C. The National Library façade has a quadriga and large globes supported by atlantes. The fourth side is formed by two palaces.
