There is a path all the way around the Ringstrasse. It's shared between walkers/runners and cyclists for most to the way but it's a good surface and flat. We were in Vienna enroute to the Berlin marathon so it was a great 5km circuit for...More

We walked this road several times for different reasons. When we came beginning of September, there was a demonstration/music event that was just amazing. A huge parade with different trucks playing different music. We watched the parade go by and had a little dance also....More

I drove, walked and rode the tram around the Ring - and it was mesmerising to see the magnificent buildings and the delightful colours of autumn leaves. I would recommend it to anyone in Vienna.

Around 1850 Emperor Franz Joseph II ordered the tearing down of Vienna's city walls with the words, "I will it." In the place of the walls, luxury houses and palaces were built that still stand today.

Walking along the Ringstrasse is to appreciate one of the most interesting streets (perhaps the most interesting) in the world. Lined with trees in many parts of it, it is amazing to observe buildings such as the opera house, city hall, parliament, and imperial palace....More

Had the pleasure of experiencing the Ringstrasse on foot, tram and horse carriage. There's lots to do and see at leisure. Definitely worthwhile experience if you're ever in the city.

Bought a weekly pass for 16 euros at a U station. This allows as much public transit as you want from Monday to Monday. We boarded tram 2 on the ring by the opera house. As you approach the Danube canal, switch to tram 2...More

Once you buy your transit ticket or transit pass, hop on the tram #2 and sit back. The route goes counterclockwise around the old city. Halfway around, exchange to tram #1 at Schwedenplatz and complete the circle. Or can do by bike (We're not that...More

As our hotel was in the ring we could walk around the whole Ringstrasse, which was an excellent experience and highly recommended.

I would like to know how, where, when to see the famous Lippizaner horses in Vienna. We are trying to incorporate that into a visit, either during free time on a viking river cruise or by visiting Vienna after the cruise.

The Lippizaner Stallions engage in training exercises at the Spanish Riding School at specific hours, and tickets are required; reservations are very highly recommended. Go to the Spanish Riding School website (srs.at) for... More
Would it be safe to walk along the Ringstrasse after dark, and is there a lot of activity there at night? My first day in Vienna I don't arrive until 7:30PM and would love to spend that evening just wandering the old city.

Yes it's safe to walk around after dark. While most shops are closed you will find plenty of cafes and bars open. It's a lovely area to see the trolleys moving throughout the city. Enjoy!
Can you give ME directions from the train station, Berlin HBF?

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.
