The Ringstrasse yellow tram tour at 7 Euros each is a steal and great value, especially when compared to the othere tourist busses etc. The Ringstrasse ( or inner ring road passes most of the major tourist attractions including the Parliament and Opera House.

Wonderful way to get a handle on the old city of Vienna. Take the trams and buses that take the Ringstrasse route. They stop frequently and a 3-day pass will cover all of your rides. See the Parliament, Opera House, City Hall and 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
