The Burggarten is popular these days due to the reopening of the Palmenhaus as a swish bar/restaurant. However, this small park beside Hofburg has always attracted its fair share of visitors, keen to have their photo taken before the Mozart Monument. Created by Viktor Tilgner in 1896, it originally stood on Albertinaplatz before being moved to the Burggarten in 1953. Wolfgang Amadeus poses rather preciously on a plinth bearing scenes from Don Giovanni, representations of his father and sister and a host of adoring cherubs.
