You do not need to take this trip as you can pay 7.90 euros for a 24 hour ticket to ride on the buses, trams & trains. This yellow tram takes you around the inner ring of the city. You do see the sights but...More

This road forms a ring around the older part of the city which can be a good start to orientating yourself to the city. We walked most of it as the area is flat. If walking does not appeal I suggest using the regular red...More

Pro’s don’t take the tourist bus or tram... just jump into tram 1 or 2 and enjoy nice impressions around the “Wiener Ring”. Even locals put in their headphones, and chill inside a tram when it gets rainy and cold in Vienna. Some seats are...More

This was an expensive journey as we found out the Vienna pass was not supported on this attraction. Our pass did allow us free travel on the ordinary trams which also did the same route.

Not sure, but once in Vienna the subway is very good and just check the connection, probably the U1 line two or three stops. Get off around museum square.
