Among the numerous tributes to Viennese musicians that are liberally dotted around the Stadtpark, none are as artistically successful or as often photographed as Edmund Hellmer's 1925 Strauß Monument. Dedicated to the Waltz King, Johann Strauß Junior, this delicate gilded statue perfectly captures the movement of his frenzied violin playing. At night, the illumination shows up the naked nymph-infested stone arch in the background. This is the classic Vienna snapshot - don't go home without one.
