Statues – Vienna

During my walk around the ring street around the city center I saw a couple of impressive statues dedicated to famous Austrians. The most famous statues were of the musicians Mozart (3-5), and Strauss (1-2). Unfortunately, Strauss’s golden statue had been vandalized (see photos) and was fenced up (but had enough gaps that I could poke my lens through). The other statues were of the writers Grillparzer (6) and Goethe (8), who is actually German.
