Strudlhofstiege

The outdooir staircase "Strudlhofstiege", an important Jugendstil (Art Nouveau) work, was opened in November 1910. It is named after the sculptor and painter Peter Strudel who owned property on the street above the staircase. In 1951 the Austrian author Heimito von Doderer published a famous novel named after the staircase: "Die Strudlhofstiege oder Melzer und die Tiefe der Jahre" (The Strudlhof Steps or Melzer and the Depth of the Years).

  1. At some point I must have seen this- it feels familiar.
