Find out about Strauss first and then visit the statue... nice statue well maintained... busy area which made it difficult to get a picture of it without someone walking into the shot!,

The park offers a very relaxed atmosphere and the cafe Strauss, on site, is a good place for a coffee. The statue itself is perfectly preserved and is situated close to the ‘Hop-on, hop-off’ bus stop. For music lovers, this is a must see.

The monument is well-preserved and beautifully shines in the center of the Stadtpark. You cannot miss is while taking a walk in the beautiful and relaxed greenery.

When stayed in Vienna, I walked by the monument everyday. It seems too popular to be good. But it is really important. Just like the Peeing Boy in Brussels, this statue is a symbol of Vienna. Tourists come here to take pictures with Johann Strauss....More

This is a lovely park to walk or bike through as well as seeing the Strauss Monument. Vienna does a wonderful job of combining the city's beauty with it's history. No charge.

Shiny statue in the park dedicated to this Waltz guy. So groovy and cool to have seen. That music from that movie 2001 A Space Odyssey and other dancing grooves back in their day. I guess this guy could have been the Jimmy Hendricks/Michael Jackson...More

We had the benefit of staying at the Marriott across from the park. Take some time and stroll through it. It's beauty, even on a rainy day, is worth seeing. Of course the Strauss statue is located here as well as a Michelin star restaurant.

How can you visit Vienna and not pay homage to Strauss ? The surrounding park is lovely and the monument itself is very tasteful.
