We travel to Hanover Germany in January on business, and use the opportunity to visit a couple European cities on our own while we're over there. We had not visited Austria, and in doing research beforehand, heard from several people that Vienna was not their favorite destination. We visited anyway, and I couldn't disagree with those opinions more. Our hotel... More

It is a large circular road surrounding the Vienna inner district and lined with several nice buildings, among which the State Opera, the Vienna university, museums etc. You can do it by feet but it is a long walk and the weather should be nice in order to appreciate. I did it by tram (line D) and it is very... More

When you visit Vienna take a walk around the Ring. Observe the beautiful architechture of the various buildings that many belonged to very wealthy families. If you readthe wonderful book "The Hare with The Amber Eye" by De Wall you will love this walk seeing his family house and remembering the fantastic story that he tells. The 650 year old... More

Did the Ringstraße and it's good... Lots of interesting places to see and it will give you a real feel for Vienna. .... But for me I think there is much better things to do.... but give it a go as it will cover a lot of the city ....

You can walk at least the main parts of the Ringstrasse , or take a transportation that goes in all ring. You can see some good shopping places there. Try also the sausages in the smal wood cabins in the street . They have a variety of sausages and big lines.

Shure is. one should rent a bike, walk and take tram Nr 1 or 2 to circle the whole street/avenue around central district. Every part has something unique to offer.

Ringstrasse (Ring Road) circulating Vienna's Inner City houses a lot of famous and magnificent buildings, p.e. Austrian Parliament Building, Burgtheater, University of Vienna, Vienna State Opera, Museums (the Museum of Art History and the Museum of Natural History), Town Hall, etc. To see all these sights it is best to take the Vienna Ring Tram.

Start at the State Opera House and see most of the most influential buildings in Vienna. Either use the Hop on Hop off bus or the Tram. But which ever way you see it it will be memorable

It's a centre of transportation in Vienna. From everywhere you go, you can easily arrive to this place, where are all connections to drive further. You don't need a car in Vienna, public transportation is excellent.

Acquaint yourself with the numerous palais that are standing around the Ring. There were 800 of them built in the 1800s. Let your guidebook be your instructor.

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.
