The tram service runs all day long and the stops are well located for visiting all the major attractions. I found buying a ticket in advance from the underground station ticket machine easier than trying to get one whilst on board a tram. You need small coins for the on-board machines and we didn't have any small change when we... More

This is not about the Ringstrasse itself. It is about the Ringstrasse Train (streetcar) that goes around the Ringstrasse. We had bought Vienna Passes and used them extensively. We were welcomed onto the Ringstrasse Train thinking that we could use them there (since we also had the public transport passes), but no. They welcomed everyone onto the train (streetcar) giving...

The most disappointing part of our visit. This is not worth the money. Takes half an half to complete the circuit but with no comentary,so you have to work out the buildings for yourself.

When they tore down the city walls of Vienna, they created the Ringstrasse. Get on a strassenbahn and ride it all the way around. Great views. Most sites are within a couple of blocks of the ring (but not all). Great set of restaurants on the Ring. If you're an opera buff, the Opera is there too.

The most impressive buildings in Vienna lie on the wide avenue known as the Ringstrasse. A good multi-language commentary explains everything as you progress at a leisurely pace.

The Ringstrasse, or the Boulevard, is the ring road which circles the historic inner city of Vienna. To travel around this road is a great way of seeing many of the great sights of the city, for example, the Parliament building, the State opera, the imperial Palace some of the great museums,parks, the river and so on. We walked around... More

Vienna's ring Road which surrounds the historic centre and links many historical palaces and parks.. You can take a tram to hop from place to place.

Whether it is by using the tram or by walking the Ringstasse is a good way to see vienna as some of the more interesting places are located around this road and tram line that circles the old historic center of Vienna.

The tram takes you round the ring strasse(s) with a speaker voice as guide. Much nicer than a bus. Starts and ends at Schwedenplats.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood 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 centre. 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.
