Pinsteps. Hofburg

The most elegant and famous wing of the Hofburg Palace with the famous rotunda with a green dome, called the wing of St. Michael. This part of the palace was planned by Joseph Emanuel Fischer von Erlach, a Viennese architect of the early 17th century. It serves as a link between the winter riding school and the wing of the Imperial Chancellery. However, since the building of the former Imperial Theater (Burgtheater) stood in this direction, these plans remained unfulfilled, until Ferdinand Kirchner built this part of the palace from 1889 to 1893, using a slightly modified plan. After the construction of the Mikhailovsky Square was completed, two sculptural fountains were installed on the façade of the wing: Rudolf Weir's Power to the Sea and Edmund Hellmer's Power on the Ground. The wing is named after the church of St. Michael on the opposite side. Translated with Google Translate
