Discovery - Baroque Water Bassin
Schwarzenberg Garden - Vienna

I prefer not to. Sometimes it is better not to build but look what is already there!

On the Salmbräu-Belvedere Stöckl construction site within Schwarzenberg Garden they have found today the hidden Baroque Water Bassin from about 1731 from Fischer von Erlach and Johann Lucas von Hildebrandt. We always said the Bassin on terrace level 3 of the park might be there under ground, nobody believed us, now they have found it! What you see is only a small part of the water bassin, the rest is still waiting to be discovered. On the right side: the baroque bassin wall.

This brings hope to the fact that Schwarzenberg Garden and the Baroque Water Bassins will not be distroyed, but kept as a "green zone" of high architectural quality and as unique Urban Heritage in the middle of the city of Vienna, connecting the First District with the new area around Hauptbahnhof.
