Ringstrasse, Vienna
(4.5/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
A ring road surrounding the Old Town of Vienna, Ringstrasse contains many historically and architecturally important buildings. The 5.3 km (3.3 mi) road replaced Vienna's former city walls. While this road was designed mostly as a display of the Habsburg Empire's grandeur, a second, parallel street called Lastenstrasse serves more practical purposes for traffic. Lined with many notable museums and cultural institutions, many of Rinstrasse's buildings are older than the street itself. A loop of the street will take you to the Vienna State Opera, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, Austrian parliament building, Vienna's city hall, and other historic buildings. Plan to see Ringstrasse and other attractions that appeal to you using our Vienna vacation trip planner.

  • Beautiful, shows the local architecture. Many monuments, giving a good idea of the many attractions at the same time

  • 由環城大道可見維也納作為一個現代化城市的完善規劃與其時的商業規模。沿街頗有特色的建築,我們只走了一段,在黑山咖啡館坐下來用了早餐。如果坐電車繞一圈,感覺應該不同。 
  • It is a very nice Avenue, ideal for a vuelte (1 or 2), tram to run through it and you can see all the buildings that are very cute. But seeing them from the tram is more than well
