The south side of the new market square is closed by the Ambasador Hotel. Thanks to the support of the US Embassy, a memorial plaque was installed on the facade of the hotel on April 21, 2010. It says that Mark Twain stayed at this hotel from October 1898 to May 1899. He also stayed at the Metropole Hotel on Morzinplatz from September 1897 to May 1898 and spent the summer in the Villa Paulhof in Kaltenleuthene, where his wife and daughter Jane were treated at the spa. Mark Twain himself and his daughter Clara did not like water procedures. Twain spent a lot of time working, despite the dissatisfaction of his girls. In his defense, Twain, with his inherent humor, said: "As soon as I went out for a walk through the hills, the fog immediately enveloped me with his thick blanket. I am afraid that my view of things will be clouded." Just a few years before the beginning of the fateful 20th century, in 1897 from Austria, Mark Twain wrote the famous article Steering times in Austria. (Time of Troubles in Austria - free translation) In addition to Mark Twain, this hotel stayed in: Theodore Roosevelt, Henry Ford III, Thornton Wilder, Marlene Dietrich, Romy Schneider, Josephine Baker, Svyatoslav Richter, Robert Schumann, Louis Trenker, Prime Minister Jawaharlall Nehru Princess Elena from Greece and Princess Maria Alexandria Victoria from Edinburgh. Well, we have to be noted at the fountain in the center of the square and find out the fate of his sculptures and tomorrow we are waiting for the Vienna Woods and Baden.

From Stephansplatz to Albertina and surroundings. My trip in Vienna of Sep 25, 2018.

From Stephansplatz across the ancient Karntrashtrasse to the Albertina Gallery. In Albertina, there was an exhibition of Monet, when the works of this artist were brought from different museums of the world and exhibited together, representing the same places at different times of the year or at different times of the day. And the walk on the square of the old market ended, with the funny story of Mark Twain. Translated with Google Translate
