Originally, eight such lions were created by the sculptor Josef Leimer in 1873 for the roof of Vienna’s second southern train station. These Lions of Saint Marcus were a symbol for the established train connection from Vienna to Venice. Six of the eight winged stone lions were destroyed in World War II, the second of the two surviving lions is now in the park of Laxenburg Palace (“Schloss Laxenburg”).

When the old station was destroyed the lion was removed and refurbished. On September 29, 2014, it was placed at the main entrance of the new train station; for conservation reasons inside the hall.
