The building is right next to the town hall and you won´t miss it. The Athena and grand feelings make me feel that Vienna used to be the best capital. I suggest you to take pictures and have a close look at Athena.

this is one of the most awkward buildings in Vienna but at the same time one of the most spectacular. It would make every greek city proud to have it, and still it has been designed by a scandinavian architect. If you have the time should do a tour.

This is a good building, in Greek revival style. Something different from the surrounding buildings. I saw it from outside, not sure whether it is accessible inside for visitors.

The Reichsrat parliament building, built in forms of Greek architecture between 1873 and 1883, was designed by Theophil Hansen. The fountain of Pallas Athena that stands in front of it is a work by Karl Kundmann and others. The beauty of the building makes one so engrossed that for the moment one forgets that this is a place of a... More

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.
