Mr 62, Ms 53 and Miss 12 got on the tram at 10.00 not too many people on board. Friendly helpful staff. The commentary was perfect, lovely music and not too much detail. A great way to get an introduction to this beautiful city!

This is a 25 minute non stop trip around the Ringstrasse in an old tram. Cost €9 which includes a set of ear buds to listen to the commentary in your language. It points out buildings of interest that you pass.

You are given headphones to listen to the places of interest. We only jumped on because it was starting to rain and we wanted to do the circle tour , but couldn't make head nor tail of the tram system. I think it requires you...More

We used the tram service when visiting the museums at night - it was fab. All included in the museums ticket offer. A more modern tram took us around the first time then caught an original old rickety tram Home. They gave us a souvenir...More

I’d advise downloading Rick Steves’ free online audio tour for the Ringstraße, then dial it up whenever you are on the tram head for other activities in Vienna. The Steves’ audio tour is organized by tram stop, making it easy to do this in either...More

We took the Ring Tram around Vienna; about all I can say is that it saves you a fair amount of walking. But it's only about a 30-minute loop, and 99 percent of the time you can't see anything because of trees, buildings, or tour...More

We did this tour today after being told that, on the hop on and off bus, you couldn't really see anything. The ring tram was worse, because the hop on and off bus was always in the way and you couldn't see a darn thing....More

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories

The tram starts and finishes from down at the river and does not stop at all. Cost only allows for one circuit of the route.
