Vienna's Grand Boulevard

The Ring

Parliament in Vienna
Town hall Vienna

Stroll along Vienna's splendid boulevard and admire it as a window on the former Habsburg monarchy.


In 1857, the city wall and its bastions were razed, and during the following years this splendid grand boulevard encircling the city was created. It contains a typical cross-section of government buildings, private mansions, spacious squares and parks, monuments and elegant cafés.


Take a trip turn around the old city and see Otto Wagner's Post Office Building, the Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna's City Park, the Vienna State Opera, the Imperial Palace, theMuseums of Fine Arts and Natural History, Parliament, the Burgtheater, the University and the Stock Exchange...
