several ams around the Inner Stadt. Past parks and gardens, museums, State Opera. Take the tram if you don't want to walk. Good orientation of the city.

This is a must see in Vienna just to see the incredible architecture. Don't bother with the yellow tourist tram though. It's significantly cheaper to buy a day ticket for the trams. Start at Schweden Platz by jumping on the No1 to Oper then change to the No2 to take you back to Schweden Platz

Huge disappointment! Do not waste your eight euro! We waited in front of the Marriott while the tram flew by us twice! Our hotel concierge was not aware that their practice of picking customers up at any stop on the Ringstrasse had changed to only one pickup and drop off point. When we attempted to listen to the audio guides,... More

It was nice doing Ring Tram tour, because it help to be at each historical points of Vienna. Best thing was to have a 24 hours ticket, which let you to stop at every station. It was difficult to fix station if you didn't drop off at it.

Although there is a really cute tram that runs the entire Ringtrasse take the time to walk it so you can stop, take pictures, enjoy the parks, check out the cathedrals and stroll the beautiful winding walkways. It's worth the walk!

The interesting part goes from the Urania passing by the Stadtpark to the Opera house Hofburg Rathaus and the old Stock exchangeand then you can forget it

A bargain tour of downtown Vienna and an orientation to important sites. Bus fare on the Ringstrasse is just 2.20 Euro. You do have to transter busses at least once. Take note -- unlike bus's in the US fares are not taken by the driver. You are expected to have the ticket or a pass. At little different for us... More

Either walk, or there is also a tram around the ringstrasse, to see all the sights. Parks, the lovely buildings, architecture, monuments with some of the big sights (castles etc) on the way. Well worth it!

It is a great access road to inner old town of Vienna. A lot of historic points to visit along its path. Great to walk if weather is permitting.
