Many of the sights of Vienna are located in or around the ring, such as the best museums, the Hofburg and St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Within the ring, these tourist attractions are within walking distance.
To get there or to reach more distant destinations such as Schönbrunn Palace, use the excellent public transport network with metro, trams, buses and trains. Tickets for one trip (2 €), one day (6,70 €), 48 hours (11,70 €), 72 hours (14,50 €) and one week (15 €, valid from Monday to Sunday) are available in kiosks and tobacconists or at vending machines at train stations.
An interesting alternative is the Vienna City Card, which gives you a discount for the price of 29 € 72 hours of unrestricted transport and 210 attractions, cafés and restaurants. The card is available in hotels and tourist information centers.
The Fiaker, two-horse cabs, are an integral part of the cityscape and a very special way to explore Vienna. A 30-minute carriage ride costs about 50 €.
