The monumental building imitates the classical Greek style. The whole structure and the superb fountain in front of it (with the representation of the goddess of wisdom, Athene) are grandiose and you can understand easily from their scale and beauty that Vienna was truly a Capital of an Empire. We didn't take the inside tour because we arrived to late,... More

We didn't pay to enter the building but glad we didn't based on other TA reviews. It is however worth a visit just to take in the wonderful architecture.

While the exterior is beautiful and very Greek, this Parthenon-inspired building isn't worth the 5 Euro entrance fee and guided tour, especially since there's nothing spectacular inside. Simply admire from the outside this structure that houses the 2 houses of the Austrian legislature, then move on. You can get here by taking trams 1 or 2 that goes along the... More

Lovely and great looking parliament building. Regular tours organised in both English and German. Extremely well maintained and aesthetic art work and interiors. Well recommended for tourists to the city.

The tour is very well organized and the staff is very helpful, especially the guide who was very friendly with children. The building is impressive too with lots of artwork. We really enjoyed it and would recommend a visit to the Parliament building in Vienna. The entrance is from a glass door behind the statue of Athena.

Interesting place to visit. Ticket is for 5 euros for an hour long tour - it's in German and English. Ceilings are beautiful! Artwork on the walls and marble pillars tell a lot about its history. Tour also takes you the modern part of parliament currently in use. You see the old and the new.

Looks a bit unusual for a parliament but in a good way. Viewed from the pavement it looks so huge and colossal. It's in the heart of the city, next to the City Hall.
