Buy a guidebook (e.g., Rick Steves) and ride the Tram. You can then hop on and off and get more out of the experience than paying for the Vienna Ring Tram Tour (yellow tram)

Very convenient, with excellent commentary (plastic headphones provided). Well worth the cost as you can hop on or off anywhere as many times as you wish (I paid for the 24 hour pass).

Very famous street which goes around the centre of Vienna. Built on a place when medieval walls once stood. Amazing architecture throughout. Great place to take a stroll and enjoy the scenery.

For me taking a ride on board this train is like flipping through the pages of an interesting travel book. As it moves new sights and buildings come up like we flip through a flip book. Very interesting and good way to see the city.

While there is history behind this road, it and its trams made for a very convenient way to get around Vienna!

Like many other reviews have already stated: This ring road is kind of the guideline for Austrian History. Many very famous buildings are situated along that road, many of them are very beautiful. Couple of things to consider: - Although the inner part of Vienna...More

Not sure, but once in Vienna the subway is very good and just check the connection, probably the U1 line two or three stops. Get off around museum square.
