This is a short tram ride around the ring. You cannot get on and off the tram. The tram is bright yellow and easy to identify (for first time visitors). The buildings you see are beautiful and the commentary certainly helped us with orientation. It was our first activity and we were able to find many tourist attractions very easily... More

We took the tram once or twice around town, not because we couldn't walk the short distances, but just for the experience, and it sure was lovely.

If you have done the free walking tour this is quite a disappointment. It goes around with little information. The walking tour guide was more informative. They mention the hotels en route which historical play no real significance to Vienna.

The tour is pretty, but you aren't missing much if you skip it. It's fun to see the sights this quickly, but it's overpriced and can be hard to find the sights as the audioguide is talking. The ring tram is easy to find as soon as you step off the subway and it runs every 30 minutes.

We did our research before coming to Vienna but still thought it would be a good idea to take the tram tour. We caught the last one in the evening and it was a really nice way to get the lay of the land. The audio guide is helpful as you see the attractions on the way. We were able... More

The ring tram is great if you want to see the main parts of Vienna in less than an hour, but if you have more time I think I prefer the hop on hop off bus. The tram works but we did both and the bus just seemed far better and better value. I think I would give it a... More

The ring tram is a fantastic way to see all the highlights, buildings that Vienna has to offer. It is a non stop circuit but great way to familiarise yourself to decide where you want to visit. The tram takes about 25/30 minutes and if it is cold whilst you are visiting Vienna then a great way to get warm.... More

Its a little pricey but a great way to see Vienna's attractions if you don't have a lot of time in the city. 25 minute tour with an audio guide in most major languages. In between sites you can listen to the sound of Mozart and Strauss. Even on the coldest of days the tram was well heated. Our kids... More

You are back before you know it asking 'what just happened to my nine Euros'. Walk it in an hour for some exercise.

19 euros for 2 people for a 40 minute experience. What you get: earphone for one ear to listen to a lazy script with very little information and mostly classical music. The train speeds by sights too quickly to appreciate anything. I chose English and the recording was read in a heavily-accented English. Worst of all, the windows were dirty.... More

Staying in Old University Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
