“The Place to Be in Vienna For Tourists”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

This is the area with all the stuff! Museums, old building, great architecture, and more. It is big, so plan on lots of walking, and more walking. Get a map with the sites on it and overlay the U-bahn stops, or you will get lost!

“THE FIRST THING YOU SHOULD DO ON YOUR FIRST VISIT TO VIENNA !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

When in Vienna for the first time, DO go to the Ring, i.e. the circular boulevard that circles entirely around the historical part of the City ! And the best way to discover Vienna is to take the old Tramway on the Ring, that takes you around completely and brings you back to your departure, with earphones that provide you with all the essential start comments on the beautiful surroundings you are to meet ! You can if you want take a day ticket at a reasonable price that allows you to get off and on at any point ! You can't see more of Vienna in a single move ! And the old tramway is very pleasant ! Then go to the tourist office opposite the Albertina Museum and get a Three Days Vienna Pass that allows you to travel no limits on all of the trams, metros, buses, plus reductions of the fees to most of the monuments and museums ! Well worth it !!!

“Road to all of Vienna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

This follows the wall of the old Vienna city wall. A wonderful bus called the "hop on hop off" takes you all around the ring. You have head sets in several languages to hear all about what you are passing. You can hop on and off for the entire time you like and visit all the interesting spots. Great way to start the visit to Vienna.

“Easy way to circle it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

We followed the advise of emulating the Ring Tram by buying a day pass and using trams 1 and 2 to circle the Ringstrasse and do some Hop On Hop Off at different locations ! It is a very cheap ,efficient and interesting way of seeing and even visiting the majority of the most interesting sites of Vienna .
Doing it both during daytime and the evening was also very interesting !It is like visiting 2 different things !
