Complete waste of money and time. Very short ride, commentary was poor and lacking details. Spent most of the time listening to music.

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

The tram starts and finishes from down at the river and does not stop at all. Cost only allows for one circuit of the route.
