Known as the world’s most beautiful boulevard, Vienna’s Ringstrasse will mark its 150th anniversary next year. Compared to any similar area, the Ring boasts of having more representative buildings, palaces and parks.
Ringstrasse was officially opened on May 1, 1865 by then Emperor Franz Joseph. From then on, huge and magnificent buildings were built within the area shaping the Vienna Ring. Among them are the Vienna State Opera, the Burgtheater, the Neue Burg, the Parliament, the Univeristy, City Hall and the Kunsthistorisches Museum and the Museum of Natural History.
