Reminder: Ring closed off

I, myself, haven’t been near the Ring today, but I just remembered that its closure (rather, the closure of parts of it) was planned for today, so I thought it might be a good idea to post a reminder.

Vienna’s Fan Zone extends from Babenbergerstra├če to Schottengasse; all traffic and public transport usually going along this part of the Ring will be diverted until 4 July.

While the website of the Wiener Linien mostly concentrates on providing information on how to get to the Fan Zone (I’d still very much like to know how all affected NightLines will be diverted..), ORF.at posted a very useful map of alternate routes today (source).

    traffic jams yesterday evening.
    Even the Taxis cannot help…
