Neighborhood: 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.

    A Few Tips About the Mozart Monument in Vienna
    A superb picture can be had at the 20 foot plus high statue of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart located in the “Burggarten,” diagonally across from Kunsthistorisches Museum and not far from The Hofburg. The Burggarten is a delightful park to sit, stroll or even have a picnic, particularly on a sunny day. The marble Mozart Monument was originally unveiled in 1896. Funds to build this statue actually started 77 years before. The monument was damaged by the bombing of Vienna in March, 1945. It was restored and placed in its present location in 1953. There is a statue similar in Salzburg. The actual copy of the monument was sent to Tokyo in 1992. Both Vienna and Salzburg claim Mozart, as he once lived in both cities.

    Tribute to Mozart at Burggarten
    Situated within Burggarten and facing Opernring is the delightful monument to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). It is the work of sculptor Viktor Tilgner (1896) and displays Mozart in a playful and charming manner, celebrating his musical genius, including bas-reliefs at the base of the statue of one of Mozart's most famous operas, Don Giovanni. This is one of the most famous and popular monuments in Vienna and like the Strauss Statue at Stadtpark, seems to always have tourist groups gathering to take photos with the beloved Mozart. Visit early in the day if you want to take unobstructed pictures of Mozart and make sure to spend a few minutes viewing from different sides so as to appreciate the details of the statue and base. It is a beautiful monument to see, even if you are not a particular fan of the maestro and his works.

    One of the highlights of the Burggarten!
    Can't stroll through the Burggarten without stopping to see and take photos of the Mozart Monument. Unveiled in 1896, this marble statue of a young Mozart in front of a music stand is adorned with putti playing musical instruments. Many symbols adorn the monument, including laurel wreaths, drama/comedy masks, and more musical instruments. In the grass in front is a G clef (or Sol key) made of pink flowers. Lots of people taking photos from afar (to get the flowers in the photo) or standing right in front of the statue.

This monument stands in tribute to Wolfgang Mozart, the great Austrian composer and pianist.

The monument features sculptures made of white marble. One of the sculptures is a statue Mozart with a music stand, sculpted in a Romantic style. The socle is adorned with references to music and theatre such as ornaments, masks and wreaths. Also on the socle is relief sculptures from one of Mozart’s most famous operas, Don Giovanni.

The monument is beautifully set in Burggarten, just behind a flowerbed, which accentuates the monument when the flowers are in full bloom.

Mozart , Wolfgang Amadeus - born in Salzburg - undoubtedly one of most influential and most prolific composer of all times.
In the Burggarten of Vienna you will find his memorial, and even that during his lifetime he was not that appreciated like others - this monument is definitely worthy of honoring this great musicians life and work.
In front of the statue during the summer you will find a floral arrangement depicting the "Sol key " - suitable for the memory of the great musician.
So even if you are not into classical music, still definitely a landmark to be put on the must see item list for your Viena trip.

I enjoyed looking at the various statues in the city honoring the different composers. This one is near the Hofburg Palace.

How lovely,

Mozart is one of my favorites and to see his statue it was an awe inspiring sight. To walk in the same area as one of the greats was well worth it

This statue of Mozart is rather big and made with lots of interesting details. I wanted to visit it because Mozart is one of the main things I associate with Austria. It's located in a very nice area.

This monument of Mozart (1756-1791)
is situated inside the Burggarten.

The marble statue of Mozart depicts scenes from his work and childhood.
The upper sections show Mozart statue and one hand turning over the sheet music on the stand next to him.

The lower relief depicts two scenes from Mozart’s opera, Don Giovanni:
"The Invitation" and 'The Stone Guest' respectively. On the sides are theatre masks and putti with music instruments. 

On the back side is a relief showing the 6 year old Mozart at the piano, his father with the violin and his sister Nannerl singing

In the lawn in front of the monument is a giant treble clef from plants.

One of the most popular statues to see in Vienna is the Mozart Statue at Burggarten. This is a delightful Laas marble monument created by Austrian sculptor Viktor Tilgner in 1896.

Here you see in Mozart in concert attire, peering proudly with his right hand extended while his right rests upon a decorative music stand. The pedestal is is quite attractive as well. You'll find gilding, inscriptions, bronze wreath and instruments and cherubs glancing upwards towards Mozart. The bottom bas includes reliefs from one of Mozart's most famous operas - Don Giovanni.

In front of the Mozart statue is a flower bed in the shape of a musical note. This looks very nice when the flowers are in bloom. Unfortunately, you won't see this if visiting during colder months of the year. However, you might be able to see the monument with snow on the ground, this makes for interesting sightseeing as well.
