Places to visit in Vienna. Languages: ru, he, en

Gustav Philipp Otto Willmann was born on April 24, 1839, in the town of Lissa (now Leszno, Poland). He was rooted in Austrian-German Christian upbringing and received his education in Breslau and at the University of Berlin. Willmann taught pedagogy in Leipzig and Vienna. In 1907, Otto Willmann played a pivotal role in the formation of the Christian Pedagogy Union.

He divided educational science into three fundamental parts: theoretical, practical, and historical. The theoretical aspect was captivating, the practical aspect was stringent, and the historical aspect bordered on nationalism. Willmann viewed religious and ethical norms as tools for transmitting scientific and cultural heritage from generation to generation. While he achieved success in some aspects, others interpreted these principles as something much greater, such as the National Socialists.

Gustav Philipp Otto Willmann passed away on July 1, 1920, in the city of Leitmeritz (now Litoměřice, Czechia).

Vienna. The Ringstrasse.

A leisurely stroll through the historic part of the city unfolds a tapestry of enchanting landmarks. The city park, adorned with the melodies of Strauss and Schubert, leads to the venerable city gates named after Luger and Mozart. The narrative of "Ah, My Sweet Augustine" echoes through time, while the oldest church in the city stands as a testament to bygone eras. The tales of Theodor Herzl, the anchor clocks, the Jewish quarter, the square where it all began, the longest narrow alley, the Estergazi restaurant, and Andersen's house weave together seamlessly.

Wander down Graben Street, passing by the plague column and fountains, where the stories of homes, people, words, legends, and traditions blend harmoniously. Amidst it all, relish the charm of restaurants, cafes, wines, and coziness that add an extra layer of warmth to this rich tapestry of history and culture.
