Well, we personally think that the whole first district of Vienna is an attracion – but here you will find “only” the highlights of the Inner City.
To explore the outer side of the inner city, we recommend a sporty walk around the “Ring” (Vienna Ring Road). Here you can admire all the major buildings in Vienna. It’s best to simply pack your travel guide and read along walking. For all the more comfortable travellers among us, there’s the historic Vienna “Ringtram” with audio guides, which circulates daily on the ring road and has all the important information about the town hall, university, parliament or Hofburg ready for you.
To discover the true centre of the city, aka Stephansplatz, take this place as the starting point of your day tour and take a look inside this truly unique cathedral. The ascent to the south tower on 343 stairs is a great experience for active visitors! Then, you have several options: the shopping enthusiasts go to Kärntner Street or Rotenturm Street, for more sightseeing you take the street “Graben”. Passing the Plague Column, turn left at the end to reach the Spanish Riding School, the Hofburg and the Heroes Square. If you still have that necessary extra money, you can also take this route with the Fiaker (horse carriages) and feel like in baroque times.
