Visit the old Town

Ringstraße & 1. District

Through the central location of Do Step Inn Home at Westbahnhof train station, you are able to reach the old town core via the U3 underground line in 10 minutes. However, if you enjoy walking, we highly recommend a stroll to Ringstraße via Mariahilfer street, Vienna’s most popular shopping street. Mariahilfer streets upper end is located right infront of Westbahnhof station. The busy pedestrian area will take you past shops, cafés and restaurants directly into museums quarter, one of Vienna’s most popular sights and the beginning of Ringstraße.

We highly recommend to explore the world famous Ringstrasse with its wonderful architecture, such as the Hofburg palace, the opera house, the butterfly house, the mayor’s office and the University on foot. Discover hidden gems in the first district and roam around medieval cobble stone streets. Enjoy some coffee and cake in a traditional Viennese coffee house or visit the landmark of Vienna, the Saint Stephen’s cathedral. On rainy days, you can tour around some of Vienna´s countless museums and galleries or book a show for the Opera or the Spanish riding school.
