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

Fun to walk through the park there are multiple statues to gaze upon. The Strauss monument itself is beautiful but don't miss the rest of the park

It's located in Stadtpark near the Kursalon. It's one of the most photographed monuments in Vienna. Maybe it's the gilded gold statue of Strauss within the carved marble framework that makes it so eye-catching. The colorful spring flower beds bring out the beauty of it. It's worth a visit even if you're making a special trip to see it. Visiting... More
