Monument to "Sisi"

This monument to famous Empress Elisabeth ("Sisi") in Volksgarten was designed by architect Friedrich Ohmann and unveiled in 1907 (nine years after her death) in the presence of Emperor Franz Joseph I who had chosen himself the location of the memorial. The monument is made of marble and shows "Sisi" in her prime, without any attributes of an Empress.
