While driving on the Ring Road you will take Pictures of the State Opera house, Maybe try a "Sacher Torte" at the Hotel Sacher behind the opera? Furtheron you can visit the Fine Art Museum or the Natural History Museum. Opposite there is the chance to visit Hofburg Palace or the Sissi Museum (entrance excluded). Drive on to the Parliament Building where the Austrian Government looks out of the window to see the Goodess of Wisdom in front of the house. Think about the wisdom that is left inside the bulding. Continuing we will pass the City Hall. It looks like a huge Church and gives its park nearly all year round to the locals to various parties, Circus, Christmas markets and ice Skating rinks. Next impressive Building is the main University. On the other side you can see the last reminder of the City Wall. Continuing the ring you will pass the former Stock Exchange and the ring Tower.
Now cut in to the first district to take some Pictures of the impressive St. Stephans Cathedral. Enter the GIANT entrance and maybe you like to climb the spire? Walk around the Cathedral and enter the fast moving live of Vienna. While you enjoy a coffee you can watch the locals hussling around and doing their daily Routine. Maybe you like to have lunch in the City Center before we drive out to Schönbrunn Castle.
There you can visit the Castle (entrance to be paid on the spot) or you walk around in the garden, maybe with a horse carriage?
Finally we drive back to the City and you can relax in a local Restaurant and let the impressions grow in your mind.
