Located next to the Rathaus, this impressively stunning building is amazing to look at (from any angle!). The statues to the front, as well as those on the roof, are wonderful. You will be amazed and it should feature near the top of any of your itinerary lists of Vienna attractions. Wonderful.

The facade of parliament is beautiful and worth a trip to check it out. The architecture is, like most buildings in Vienna, very impressive. I'm not sure if there are tours on the inside at this time, but I opted to just take some photos of the facade and fountain. If you are walking the ring road (which is a... More

The parliament building is an area with many other historic buildings. This building is marvelous to look at, and convenient to get to. Also the architecture behind this building is quite distinct from the other surrounding buildings.

This building is stunning, there are so many statues and I'm pretty sure some of it is gold plated. There was a riot at the front when we visited which has made for some interesting photos. One of the locals said is was because of money. It was the most civilised one we have seen. You can find this on... More

In true Viennese Grand style the Parliament Building stuns. It is worth the stop along the way to explore just outside the building. The statues, stairs and intricate details on the building are gorgeous. Take a moment and enjoy it's splendor!

We visited the parliament building as part of a day looking round central vienna. The building is interesting from the outside, however the best thing was doing the tour and learning more about the building and history. We hadn't planned to do the tour, but went inside to have a look and discovered the next tour was in ten minutes,... More

This building is worth walking by as it's located right by the Rathaus and other sites of interest, and the architecture is very good neoclassical style. Worth snapping a picture of but not that unique from other parliament buildings

The Parliament building is in a very nice walking area in Vienna, would be great to walk from here to Rathaus, the Mayoralty building. The architecture is impressive, the area is very nice and green, it is very well taken care of. One note - if you see any protests in Vienna on TV, they are usually here - not... More

Nice pictures to be taken but then moved on. We passed it in the evening so didn't know if it was opened. Architecture is stunning as is it all in Vienna.

The architecture of the building is impotent. You feel proud of what the humans can do. For sure inside the decision are way too far more important compared to the beauty of the building.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood 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 center. 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.
