Ringstrasse has to be worth a walk if you are fit,buildings such as the Hofburg Palace,Parliament and City Hall are just a small part of Viennese history in this area.

This is a great way to see some of Vienna's main attractions. You can take a tram that will do a loop of the Ringstrasse and this will pass many of the major attractions in Vienna. The Ringstrasse follows the old city walls which were dismantled in the mid 19th century.

Walk down the Ringstrasse as long as you can and then take tram (1 and 2 I think) to see the rest. It is a great way to feel the pulse of the city and a bit of local culture. Also, this is a great way to do some shopping and try local food. It might be a good idea... More

Catch a trolley near the Opera House and ride the loop. With a weekly public transportation pass you can hop on and off anywhere along the line to sight see or catch a bite to eat. Also, in the winter, it is a good place to warm up!

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.
