  • A Phenomenal Tribute to the Father of the Printing Press The lovely Johannes Gutenberg Monument is located near to the Embassy of Chile and St Stephan's Cathedral, and pays tribute to the impact of Gutenberg's introduction of moveable type to Europe. The revolutionary machine produced the Gutenberg Bible--the first important book to be mass-produced--and was central to the spread of scientific information, the development of the Reformation, the opening of the Renaissance, and the opportunity for regular people to learn.
  • Its just ok. Nothing exquisite. The square around it is very small so a bit crammed. Not a good place to sit for too long...unless head in to the adjoining market or shops etc.
