Pretty tree-lined drive

Beautiful tree-lined avenue to drive around - lovely to take tram or taxi tour around at night to admire lighted buildings.

We took the trams number 1 and 2 to completely circle the ring. You have to get off one and onto the other since each only does half of the ring. This is an excellent way to get an overview of the old town portion of the city, then you can get off to visit what is of interest.

We used the tram as one of our first attractions in Vienna. In fact we did the same route as the Tram Ring Tour, but we did it on our own. Like this you get a good idea of the sites which happen to be around the perimeter. Seats are really comfortable, and these trams can get you where the... More

The tram gives you a great view of the beautiful buildings along the Ringstrasse; however, it is walkable and with the great trees along the wide boulevard it is a pleasure to take in the Hofburg Palace complex and gardens, Parliament Building with the beautiful Pallas Athena, and the museums. Lots of culture if you want to take it in... More

Everything you want to see in Vienna is on or near the Ringstrasse. What and easy way to not miss the enjoyable sites of Vienna

It was nice to visit this street as I have only seen it in movies. Well worth the effort to wander around and view the fine buildings

We love to ride the old fashioned trams around the entire ring. They have old wooden seats and a great old fashioned feel to them. Because we bought a 3 day public transportation card, these trams were included. There is another company that has a fancy "ringstrasse" tour for a ridiculous amount of money-this is not part of the public... More

Apart from the fact that there are a lot of impressive building along this road, I can't say much about it because there was huge parade going on on the day we visited. I'm not sure how it's usually like but when I went there it was quite vibrant. Full of people, drinking, dancing, singing. Not the kind of place... More

For two days we tried to take the Ringstrasse Tram which we saw go by the Ring several times. Everyone told us to catch it anywhere on the ring. Some German tourist finally after asking many uncooperative Vienna residents, found out that you can only get on it at one spot far away from the Museum District. We walked down... More

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.
