Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Austria  /  Vienna Region  /  Vienna  /  Ringstrasse
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.

  • The ride in the yellow ring-tram is simply gorgeous. The vintage and the comment on Viennese, a pleasure. People smile and look forward.
