This is a great way to begin your visit to Vienna. It cost either 8 or 9 euros. It is a bit difficult to find as there is only one entry and exit location. If it is hot be advised that the bus is not...More

It's a total waste of time and money. The audio was not informative at all, and most of the time it's just playing the Blue Donau music. We had a great time in Vienna visiting many places. This is the worst, and made us feel...More

We took this tram as we needed a break from all the walking. The ride lasts about 30 min, and while you do get commentary, there are also a lot of areas where all you get is music. While it's lovely, I was hoping for...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

Can you get on the Ring Tram at the Rathaus? If so, can you then do a full tour back around and get off at the Rathaus?

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.
Is anyone able to confirm whether this is a hop on, hop off tour please? Or is this just a roundtrip with no stops? Different websites and reviews seem to offer different information. Thanks.
