Andromeda Fountain

The Andromeda fountain is hidden in the courtyard of the Old Town Hall in the city center. It was created by Austrian sculptor Georg Raphael Donner in 1741 and is one of his last works as he died in the same year. The relief in the center depicts how Perseus saves Andromeda from the sea monster Cetus.

  1. Very dramatic! One of my favourite Greek myths, too.
