Beautiful building

Good to visit when weather is fine. When we were there, it was under reconstruction and closed. But still effective.

This monument building is Austria's pride. You can see the Parliament from inside except on Sundays.

I end up there and I still don't know how. I expected to visit a normal and boring parliament and then I found myself in a BEAUTIFUL and AMAZING greek style parliament. Compared to many touristic attractions of Vienna, 5 euros was very cheap. The best was definitely the guided visit. We had a friendly and lovely guide who explained... More

The Austrian Parliament Building, originally built as the parliament for the Habsburg empire. Apparently this is the most visited site in Vienna, which is liken to Vienna’s version of Westminster. This is after all the largest building on the Ringstrasse, which is pretty interesting to me considering that many of the buildings along this road are considered new, built around... More

This is another great masterpiece by Theophilus Hansen , a great Ancient Greek style bulding hosting the Austrian parliament. Marvelous corinthian columns and sclulptures decorate the bulding inside-out! The most marvelous statue decorated the main entrance with a fountain whichi s the statue of goddess Athena.

This is still a heavily used government office building housing the two houses of the Austrian Parliament. Tours are conducted throughout the day. Try to visit when the Austrian legislature is in session.

This was one of my favourite buildings in Vienna. Whilst wandering around horse drawn carriages were driving past. What an experience. Wish the Scottish parliament looked like this!

I attended a reception in this beautiful, history laden building. Well worth visiting and pay attention to the old parliament meeting room - you can feel the history!

I think it's Greece's best ambassador I've seen ! Greek architecture, Athena in the middle and 4 Greek statues ( plus 4 Romans )

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
