    The monument to Joseph II

    Under Emperor Joseph II (1741-1790), the main poorhouse was converted into a general hospital. On the scroll in his hand you can read the dedication which can also be found above the entrance on Alser Straße: Saluti et solatio aegrorum (“For the healing and care of the sick”).
