Vienna's Grand "Boulevard of Splendor" - The Ringstrasse from State Opera to Votiv Church Deutsche Version dieser Tour
In 1857, Emperor Franz Joseph decreed the demolition of Vienna's medieval fortifications. The idea of a 'Boulevard of Splendor' was born. The ‘Ring’, as the Viennese call it, became the imperial city's greatest pride and building project, a work of art initself, and unique in Europe. Today it is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is flanked by magnificent public buildings erected alongside the mansions of Vienna’s rising industrial and financial bourgeoisie, gardens and prancing monuments. We tell stories about the architects and their clients, anecdotes, and show historic photos.
Meeting Point 1., Opernring 1, under the arcades of the State Opera
