The Vienna Stadtpark, or City Park, is located on the east side of the Ringstrasse, situated between Vienna's first and third districts. It was originally suggested during the demolition of the old city walls to create the well known Vienna Ringstrasse.
The park is filled with statues and monuments to various people that have had a hand in shaping Vienna into what it is today. One of the most popular tourist attractions, and probably the most photographed, in the park is the golden statue of Johann Strauss II.
The Kursalon is also located in this park. Originally it was designed as a spa, where people could drink mineral water with supposed healing properties. Today, the Kursalon is used to host concerts and balls.
The Wienfluss (in English - Vienna River) runs through the park, over which runs the Stadtparkbrüke that provides a link from the center of Vienna to the third district.
The Stadtpark has its own U-Bahn (Subway) station as well, which was designed by Otto Wagner which can be worth seeing even if you don't intend to take the subway!
