Be prepared to be amazed. The Ringstrasse is full of fabulous architecture, Museums, Scuptures, Parks Lots to see and discover. You can opt to take a long leisurely stroll down the Avenue at the centre of The Ringstrasse and just for a moment when there is a break in the traffic and a horse and cart trots past you are...

Used the Ringtram when I was in Vienna for 24 hours and found it very useful to get a feel of the city when I had such a short time there. Unfortunately it doesn't always fit everyone queuing so get there early, at least 10 mins. We had to wait for a second tram after the first was too full.... More

By walking, you will appreciate all that you can see along the street. Take your camera with you because everything is photo op.

Great tram service to get to sights around Vienna. Most of the main attractions can be found within a reasonable walking distance form this route.

So much to see around each few blocks of the Ringstrasse, worth walking it as much as possible! Or, take a couple of the different underground trains and stop at the various locations that way

This is a wide street with excellent cycle lanes so you can cycle all around Vienna in safety, through nice tree lined cycle paths. Either bring your own bike or you can hire one of the city bikes which are free for an hour but I am not sure of the registering requirements as we had our own bikes.

I do not know if the Viennese did it on purpose or not, but the idea of having a street that looks like a ring around the city center, is an excellent one. Almost all museums and much of the palaces in addition to much of the main gardens, parliament and the Rathaus are reachable from the Ringstrasse. Whether you... 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.
