This overview tour of Vienna includes Ringstraße with its prestigious buildings. Emperor Franz Josef I. inaugurated the new street officially on May 1st, 1965. However, only part of the magnificent buildings was complete at that time. Until the 1990s representative imperial buildings and private residences of the haute bourgeoisie in the style of historicism were built. Enjoy Ringstraße boulevard with its prestigious buildings like Vienna State Opera, Hofburg Palace, Houses of Parliament, City Hall, National Theatre and University. Not to forget the posh homes of very rich Viennese families, a number of them with Jewish origin, like Schey, Epstein and Ephrussi.
We drive through the 2nd district Leopoldstadt, one of the centers of Jewish life around 1900. It borders the Danube River which we cross on Reichsbrücke, having a look at modern Danube City.
