Driving this circle road around the heart of Vienna provides an idea of the cultural heritage embodied in the city of Vienna. The city was created as the center of Austrian civilization and to display the wealth and importance of the Hapsburgs. It succeeded. Wide streets, impressive architecture, and "green" space everywhere.

We took the tram and followed the Ringstrasse. It was easy to navigate and follow. The tram was so much cheaper than taking the hop on op off bus.

A good way to see the buildings around the Ring but use trams 1 and 2 rather than the much more expensive Ringtram

The great thing about this road is there are a lot of cafes that you will find to go to and you get to see the lay of the land throughout the city.

We took night time bus tour that included a ride around the Ring, and it seemed like a good way to do it. I'd heard others recommend a walk around the Ring, but that didn't seem too appealing to me. The "ring" is really a quite busy street, with lots of trams and tour buses. I enjoyed the quick tour... More

You drive past many historical buildings housing the university, government and churches. It is a quick way to see lots of the city without doing any walking.

You can either walk along Ringstrasse or take a tram. All famous Buildings just about are located along the street

The Ringstrasse is the Austrian equivalent to the Champs Elysees in Paris. It is possible to complete the loop by tram, however, this requires switching between Trams 1 & 2, depending on where you embark. Not difficult, but you need to be aware and pay attention to where you are along the ride. Overall, the tram is a pleasant and... More
