W. A. Mozart

This is one of Vienna´s most photographed monuments: it shows Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) and is located in Burggarten, a public park in the city center. The monument, made of marble and accomplished by Austrian sculptor Viktor Tilgner, was originally erected in 1896 on Albertinaplatz, but transferred to the Burggarten in 1953.
