Just a short distance away from Stadt Park is Beethoven park which is much smaller and not that well maintained and the statue of Beethoven sits in the center. Well worth a visit.

The great German artist lived in Vienna for the most part of his life and died here in 1827. The bronze statue, designed by the sculptor Caspar Clemens von Zambush, was erected in 1880 at the Beethovenplatz, near the Konzerthaus.
