Johann Strauss

This monument to Austrian composer Johann Strauss (1825-1899), also known as "the Waltz King" (amongst others he composed the famous Blue Danube Waltz), is located in Stadtpark. It was unveiled to the public in June 1921 and is currently being extensively restored. In September it will shine in renewed splendor - the poor tourists who visit Vienna until then will only see an artistically designed reproduction. I will check it out at the next opportunity...

    Leider haben wir in Wien auch die Taubenplage die oftmals Gebäude und Denkmäler verunstalten...
