Zwischen den vielen historischen Gebäuden finden sich immer wieder kleine Highlights, die historische Figuren von monumentaler Wichtigkeit darstellen.
“Alles Walzer”, this is the motto for the Opera Ball. Just like no other event, the traditions night throws their light on the “Music City Vienna” and the bright Vienna Ring. On February 23, 2017 the Opera Ball will take place for the 61st time. According to Lotte Tobisch and Desirée Treichl-Stürgkh, Marie Großbauer is the new event manager this year. Until the Opera Ball became the highlight of the ball season, it was a long journey.
“Something unpractical can never be beautiful” – architect Otto Wagner was guided by this quotation when he began drafting one of the most important financial buildings in Vienna in 1904: the “Postsparkasse”. It is one of the most famous art nouveau buildings in the capital and the current headquarters of “BAWAG PSK”. The moving history behind the building at Georg-Coch-Platz, however, is only known to a few. We have gone for you on the search for tracks and have taken a closer look at the magnificent building on the Stubenring.

The Vienna Ring shines and sparkles ever since again in its most beautiful light – which is even more magnificent and imposing than ever before. In addition to the Stuben, Schubert and Kärntnerring, this year the park and opera ring also shine in its sublime splendor.
The Christmas season is getting closer and slowly but surely we fall into the spell of this contemplative time. The scent of fresh Christmas biscuits and punch is in the air and the first Advent calendars already hang in the domestic children’s rooms. It is therefore no wonder that the Viennese Christmas market at the Rathausplatz opened its doors two weeks before the beginning of the Advent, and has inspired a Christmas village that is as diverse as ever.
The Schottenring: home of many historical buildings, hotspot for night owls and domicile for lovers of the Danube Canal. The many possibilities offered by this ring segment are immeasurable. But what few people know is that there is a lot of history.
This year, Vienna’s Ring Road is already lit for Christmas on 25th November, thus providing a sparkling highlight in the heart of the city.
Fall is now almost one month’s move in Vienna and the cityscape is experiencing its most colorful change. The colorful leaves turn the trees along the Ring Road in Vienna into a regular spectacle of red, green, brown and yellow tones and spread a foliage carpet on the boulevard, which provides a wonderful flair.
“Land der Berge, Land am Strome …” – it is said every year on October 26 throughout Austria. Since 51 years now, we already celebrate the sovereignty and neutrality of our country. So also on the Vienna Ring Road where you commemorated this date in a very special way.
(Deutsch) Where today’s politicians enter and leave, is one of the most important sections on the ring. Named after the first President of the Republic of Austria in 1956, Dr. Karl Renner (who came to history for his contribution to the formation of the Second Republic as an honorary citizen of the city of Vienna), the Ring section is today considered a home for the Palais Eckstein, the Republic Monument Volksgarten and, of course, the Parliament.
Where the Viennese city wall once stood, the most magnificent street in Vienna today is the Vienna Ring Road. Countless places of interest lined up here – whether the opera, the art historical museum, the parliament or the town hall – here one can never really get enough.
To coincide with the semester start, we are also focusing on the historical knowledge center on Vienna’s Ring Road in October: the “Universitätsring”. The former university ring has been found here, where the town wall once stood, since 1872.
On your marks, get set, go! Tomorrow the Erste Bank Vienna Night Run invites you to explore the Wiener Ring on an ongoing basis – and this is the tenth time this year.
“Let there be light!” Was the motto last week at the radiant event on the Danube canal, in the course of which we were able to present our highlights (in the truest sense of the word) for this year’s Christmas lighting along the Vienna ring. But enough with the word games – what do you expect this year?
From the end of November, when the Viennese Christmas illumination of the city again gives Christmas glamour. We can hardly expect this from the Christmas lighting service of the Vienna Chamber of Commerce, but we are working all year round on high-ways to make Christmas lighting a radiant experience for young and old alike.
(Deutsch) Originally the area of the Burgring lay outside the Viennese city wall. It was only when Emperor Franz Joseph I. took the decision to grind the city walls and instead to create a boulevard, the Burgring became a part of the Viennese inner city.
(Deutsch) Everybody, who is visiting Vienna wants to keep his experiences on picture, for those who have to stay at home that they can finally see what has been seen so far, where one has been and what has been done. For example the walk along the Vienna Ring Road, the boulevard, which you already know from the postcards …
Admittedly, until Christmas, it is still a while. But as anticipation is the best pleasure, we will take care that the Christmas fever infects you already in September.

(Deutsch) Where the most beautiful sounds are heard every day, the culturally most imposing section of Vienna’s Ring Road runs undoubtedly. And how could it be otherwise, it is named after the former k.u.k. Hofoperntheater – now better known as the “Wiener Staatsoper”. By the way, it was not only the name of the Opernring, but also the first ring road construction, designed by the architects August Sicardsburg and Eduard van der Nüll.
(Deutsch) Vienna is infected with the Pokémon fever. Wherever you look, you can see either small virtual beings (through the screen of the smartphone) or people who are staring at their screen.
As oases in the middle of the city you could call them – the rooftop bars, which combine the ambience of a new school bar with a spectacular view over Vienna and a fresh breeze around the nose.
We have listened to the people of Vienna what the highlights of the summer in Vienna are. The answers were about strolling in the city, along the Danube canal and of course the Vienna Ring Road, followed by eating ice cream and swimming in the Viennese indoor swimming pools.
The ice age has also started in summer. “What do you say, ice age at 30 degrees?” You ask? But, of course, we prefer chocolate, vanilla and strawberries in their coolest and creamiest form, as ice balls on our stakes.
The name of the Kärntner Ring is not a coincidence; it’s named after the Kärntnerstrasse, which was one of the most important long-distance trade routes in the direction of Carinthia and further to Trieste and Venice.
The summer is finally here and not only Vienna is wrapped in beautiful colors, also our website is. The logo and the website of the Vienna Ring Rode shine in summery yellow and orange to match the warm season.
With the summer also the vacation time comes and with her the agony of choice: Where do we go on journey? We asked the travel experts along the Vienna Ring road for their insider tips and the holiday trends 2016.
The ball must go into the net. Every football fan in Europe confirms that, only the question for which team you cheer, that lets the emotions rise, especially when you are in between a bunch of enthusiastic fans, because there the atmosphere explodes.
Vienna’s parks are one of the most beautiful places in the city. Here, in the gardens of the city, we like to rest: picnics, sunbathe, chat with friends and just escape the hustle and bustle of busy shopping streets.
The Vienna Ring Road is not only a magnificent boulevard and as such jewel of our city – it is also available as a jewel. Goldsmith Stefan Nikl and designer Siegfried Baumgartner have jointly designed the Vienna Ring, which is a very special reminder for Vienna fans in yellow, red or white gold.
We met Stefan Nikl and asked for a conversation.
Culture is so much appreciated in Vienna, as hardly in any other city. This may be due to the fact that Vienna is so rich in cultural offerings, historical places and cultivated traditions – as Vienna is not a popular destination for all cultural hunters and unquestioned cultural metropolises.
If you are looking for a series of small, homely dormitories at the Stubenring – according to the motto “Come in the good room” – this will soon give way to frustration. But where does the name “Stubenring”, which describes the section of the Viennese Ringstrasse between Franz Josefs-Kai and Parkring, come from?
In 2015, the Vienna Ring Road celebrated its 150th anniversary. Just as long as it enjoys its reputation as a splendid boulevard – even as one of the most beautiful in the world. We, of course, know this and appreciate our Vienna Ring not only because of its urban development and architectural achievements, but also because of its role as one of the main traffic arteries of Vienna.
The sun rays finally lure us out, which is why we also take every opportunity to keep our nose in the spring air. It is quite wonderful that in the middle of the city, along the Vienna Ring Road, the first guest gardens have already opened and invite you to just take the lunch break out into the open air.
Spring is finally here and anyone who has slipped over the winter is now lacing his running shoes. The beautiful weather lures us into the open air, so no wonder that Vienna’s streets are increasingly becoming a training ground for many joggers. After all, if you want to do sports, you do not necessarily have to leave the city, you can also do your training here.
The existing lawns are successively replaced
The Easter weekend is going to be sunny – and hopefully the long-awaited spring will start. So it is perfect to use the holidays for a long walk.
Christmas 1857: Emperor Franz Joseph decides to build a magnificent boulevard for his capital Vienna. In 1865, the unique architectural avenue was ceremoniously opened: the Vienna Ring Road. This year, the 150th anniversary of this historic event is taking place.
Waiting has come to an end. On Friday, November 27, 2015, “Lights on” was the motto on the Ring Road in Vienna, when branch observer Dr. Rainer Trefelik and financial city councilor Renate Brauner switched the button for this year’s Christmas lighting.
(Deutsch) “It is my will,” said Kaiser Franz Joseph in 1857, announcing that he was planning to expand the inner city of Vienna in the sense of a connection with the suburbs. This gave him the starting shot for the largest urban development measure of the time: The Vienna Ring Road.
Behind the glow of the Christmas lights is not only creative design and experienced expert knowledge, but also sophisticated logistics. The latest technologies and materials are used to illuminate the almost 90 trees along the Stubenring, Schubertring and Kärntner Ring sections, as well as the 36 arcades, so-called “light gates” stretching over the roadway.
In order to keep Vienna’s Ring Road famous for its reputation as a splendid boulevard, a team of renowned designers, producers and technicians is behind the project of Christmas lighting. Since the beginning of the year, they have all been working feverishly on the conception and implementation in order to put the visitors into a festive atmosphere at the Advent season.
On the occasion of its 150th anniversary, a section of Vienna’s Ring Road will be illuminated for the first time during the Christmas season.
During the intensive production of the Christmas lighting along the Ring Road in Vienna, the expertise of the Austrian lighting specialists from “Blachère Illumination” was emphasized. The company, based in Wels, Upper Austria, is one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers on the world market for Christmas illumination.
