A great way to get acquainted with Vienna is to take the Hop On, Hop Off bus which takes you all around the Ringstrasse and the city of Vienna.

I used Rick Steves's walk around the Ringstrasse to see the grand buildings that are around the road. Amazingly planned by the leaders from 100 years ago. The walk is pleasant as you can stop at sites, but you can also take the yellow tram...More

I believe the "Ringstraße" is one the most fascinating iconic roads all around the world. This is a circle surrounding the inner city. The most attractive part is "Schubertring". As an alternative you could ride on the "Ringtram" .

By buying a weekly OBB ticket you can travel for free as well as use it from the International Airport, coupled with a single zone. The many trams travel throughout the city and are very frequent.

The 8euro, half hour ride on this circular tram was just what we needed. We did this on the first afternoon, and it was very useful to see the grandest buildings and to hear a little of Vienna's history, to decide which bits to come...More

Either get Tram 1 or 2 and use the public transport system or the yellow ringstrasse tram which is tourist based and costs more but has a commentary. Trams 1 and 2 no longer go all the way round

In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards
Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks

Yes it's safe to walk around after dark. While most shops are closed you will find plenty of cafes and bars open. It's a lovely area to see the trolleys moving throughout the city. Enjoy!

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.
