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...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...More

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...More

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.

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.

I would like to know how, where, when to see the famous Lippizaner horses in Vienna. We are trying to incorporate that into a visit, either during free time on a viking river cruise or by visiting Vienna after the cruise.

Would it be safe to walk along the Ringstrasse after dark, and is there a lot of activity there at night? My first day in Vienna I don't arrive until 7:30PM and would love to spend that evening just wandering the old city.

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!
Can you give ME directions from the train station, Berlin HBF?

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.
