"Ringstrasse" Walking Tip by Imbi

Walking, Vienna: 29 reviews and 70 photos


Vienna’s Ringstrasse or “Ring,” was originally the city wall. Constructed in the mid 19th century to protect Vienna from outside threats, it now surrounds the Old City. This is 2 1/2 miles long.
You will found it easy to walk the Ringstrasse since most of the area is a pedestrian zone and traffic is limited.
