Walked around the Ringstrasse on Saturday, as a way to see Vienna, before running the Marathon yesterday. What an absolutely stunning selection of buildings and parkland. Particular highlights were the Austrian Parliament building, the Rathaus and the Votivekirche. You can see most of these buildings within an hour or so walk, which makes it all the more impressive as a... More

We had a cheap tour of the city by riding the tram around Ringstrasse in the evening. Hop on and off the numbers 1 and 2 lines to do the complete circuit.

We did the Ring tram tour not by the dedeicated Ringstrasse tram which costed 25 euros - we did it by taking Trams 1 and 2 - which ply on the same route and their prices are included when u buy the Vienna city card. Its a great way to get around. Start at the Opera building on Tram 2... More

This is a pedestrian street in the heart of Vienna with lots of restaurants and shops. Historic places like St Peter's church are around.

We liked the spectacular architecture and parks and we didn't like being run over by bikes all the time

Whether you uses the trams or walk, the Ringstrasse is so magnificent that you should not miss it. So many incredibly beautiful old buildings. You are transported back in time

You can't help but admire these old Europeans. Build all of the most impressive architectural specimens in a ring around the centre of the city and then link them all up together when transportation kicks in. Whether you're walking, or taking the Ring Tram (highly recommended, although not running when we visited due to Tram track upgrade), a trip around... More

It is worth taking a walk around Ringstrasse, but about a quarter of it is nothing you need nor want to see. All I can tell you is the not so lovely part borderlines the river if that is any help. My wife had the map and navigated, so I can't be more specific.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
