If you want to see it, you must take the 1 hour guided tour, but it’s worth it. You get to see the interior of the main rooms in this impressive place, and the explanations are interesting. We were a group of ~15 people out of them there were only 3 English speakers so the tour guide gave most of... More

We enjoyed the outside architecture of the Parliament Building and very disappointed that we paid for the tour. The guide acted as if she couldn't wait to get rid of us. She was not friendly and appeared as if she had a script and was not about to deviate from the script for any reason. It was a very large... More

Its a national landmark you can hardly miss , a beautiful design after a greek temple to signify justice and trust . The whole balance in the architecture with a beautiful fountain out front, its a work of art and hardly represents a parliament building at all which is why it is so special. You won't miss it if you... More

An impressive building in the old city. The building itself not only speaks to the history of "Austria" but also to the pride if it's culture. Would recommend when touring the city. It isn't hard to find.

If you want to see a wonderful architecture, inspired from the Greek style, go and see the Parliament Building in Vienna.. It's 300 metres away from the Vienna City Hall and from the Maria Theresa Square so it's very easy to reach. The fountain is lovely and the statues of Greek philosophers makes the building very special. A must-see in... More

This looks very beautiful with sculpture, looks like a theater unless you read the board as Parliment house.

This building would be one of the most imposing buildings in the old city. The sheer size of it, the architecture is quite stunning. Take some time to have a good look at as it, to me, would be one of the highlights of a visit to this city. Get a local guide sometime as the significance of these structures... More

While wandering around Vienna I came across this beautiful building with the grand coloumns and intricate sculptures in front. I loved finding out after the fact that this was the parliament building. Can't miss this building if you tried. Snap away with your camera!
