If you visit Stadtpark, then go and see the monument. If you go for the monument, then it's worth spending some time in the park :)

Nicely done statue of Strauss, it is not easily located as the park is quite big, and there were many other statues or head bust.

This monument looks like it's made of gold. A bit pathetic statue, but, honestly, Strauss deserved it! Lots of people taking pictures. Be prepared to wait for your turn!

A stunning statue in the park near very good dining/drinking venues. The tourists however, were climbing up the statue for photographs and really lowered the tone and appeared quite irresponsible.

Strauss Monument stands out like a beacon with the sun gleaming off the gold with the greenery in the background. Strauss is respected like a god in these parts so it is must for all music goers to site the statue in his honor, so don't waltz on past.

You can see already from the Ring the golden statue of Strauss. It is in the Stadpark which is worth to visit. You just look and you even think you can hear the nice melodies from Strauss.

This is a lovely golden statue with beautiful flowers by the sides, and situated in the beautiful Stadtpark. It is crowded with people waiting for an opportunity to take a picture.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
