While visiting Vienna, this is one of the sights you should be going to apart from the others along the Ring where you can go either by walk or any tram.

Hi, Doronbarsam. Actually is a open attraction, we don't have walls, you can go there any moment, it is free. It is pretty near to the Hofbräuhaus, go until there to drink one Hofbräu. Enjoy it.
