Took the tram in the early evening while it was still bright so got to see how beautiful Vienna is! The trip was also useful in seeing some of the main sites to visit.

A short but but fact filled trip around the city ring road, earphones supplied for various language descriptions. We did it a dusk so all the Christmas lights were coming on. Gave ideas for later on and we got to ride on a tram Recommended

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
