With a length of 5.3 kilometres the Ringstraße in Vienna provides the setting for numerous monumental buildings that were erected during the historicist era from the 1860s to the 1890s. Together we analyse the architecture of this period and look at the question of its function then and now. We walk along the imperial axis, crossing Heldenplatz to enter the visitors centre in the Parliament, we then take a look at Vienna University, after which we board a tram to Schwedenplatz and end our tour with a visit to the Postsparkasse.
