This is worth walking by, even if just to see the other tourists! The statue is fine, but not the best the city has to offer (IMHO), and it is smaller than I thought... However, the best part was watching a group of Chinese tourists run (yes, run past their guide in a stampede, as soon as it came into... More

For those who are Strauss fans, this is a nice monument to stop by Stadpark. The park isn't large, so walking through it doesn't take a long time and besides Strauss, there are other memorials to notable artists, including Franz Schubert. Was nice visiting the park in winter when very few people were around as it made taking pictures of... More

Reading through the entries found here, it's funny what people are expecting. It is just a monument for the greatest composer of the waltz. He and his family changed the way of living in his time. Of course it is just a "monument", but it is the feeling you are about to get. Located a the beautiful park, where you... More

This monument took me quite a while to look for and there was not many people during my time of visit. The statue is covered in gold and looks good when the weather is nice and sunny. I am not a great fan of music but if you like music then you will like to visit this monument.

Once you see the crowds of people you will find the Strauss statue which is worthy of a photo or two. There are other nearby spots in this park that are picture worthy as well. Be patient and you will have an opportunity for a short photo shoot.

the park is full of statues to composers and famous artists, but it is the one of Strauss that everyone comes to see- he is gorgeous in gold, with his fiddle, shining in the sunshine! We pottered around the rest of the park too.

We enjoy seeing the monument to the 'Waltz King' - Johann Strauss when passing through Stadtpark in Vienna. This is supposedly the most photographed monument in the city and for good reason, its a lovely monument that is well worth seeking out when visiting Vienna. Here you can find a gold coloured, almost life-size statue of Strauss, standing on a... More
