Volksgarten

Volksgarten (the People’s Garden) was created in 1820, when Napoleon had the city walls destroyed. The formal plantations created in the French style, particularly the splendid rose gardens, became a place of relaxation for fashionable society. People met at one of two Classicist structures by Peter Nobile, Theseustempel (the Temple of Theseus) or Cortisches Kaffeehaus, remains of which are visible in today’s Garden Caf?. Canova’s statue of Theseus was meant for the temple, but today it graces Kunsthistorisches Museum (p 84—7). Instead, a statue of an athlete (1921) by Joseph Mollner stands in front of the temple. There is also a monument devoted to the writer Franz Grillparzer and a fountain memorial dedicated to Empress Elisabeth.
