St Stephen's Cathedral, Vienna

...Bathed in sweat, the knight awoke. In desperation he cried aloud: "I must be in Vienna tomorrow, even if the devil takes me!"
Instantly the Evil One, astride a feathered mount, appeared and spoke: "This rooster will carry us to Vienna, but in return I must have your soul!"

(I'm not sure that a rooster would be able to fly all the way from Constantinople to Vienna?)
