The Strauss Memorial in the Stadtpark by Ringstraße is one of the most famous sights of Vienna. Possibly because its pomp and tackiness match the waltzes and other music of Strauss so well. Neverthless, he is still a local hero that is worshipped annually at the "Neujahrskonzert" (New Year′s Concert) in the concert hall of the "Wiener Musikverein".
