Info

The German name Spinnerin am Kreuz ("Spinner at the Cross") is the title given to two separate Austrian stone-tower sculptures (over 600 years old), one in Vienna and the other in the nearby city of Wiener Neustadt. They are related to the story of a wife spinning beside a cross. Both columns had been designed originally by Meister Michael Knab:
in Vienna, the stone tower was built in 1375, rebuilt c.1452;
in Wiener Neustadt, the stone tower was built in 1382-84.Both stone-towers were rebuilt or renovated to survive into the 21st century.
