The Austrian Parliament is a beautiful, must-see building in Vienna. Located on the Ringstrasse, it's beautiful and accessible. Student tours were only about 3 euros, and the tour guide was very funny and informative. The inside is just as beautiful as the outside, and the tour was totally worth an hour. You can even take a picture at the President's... More

We did visit the building with one of the tours (in English), in a small group, and it was actually pretty interesting. We got to see 2 chambers and actually sit in the seats of the Austrian politicians (as seen on tv). The building itself is beautiful and the tour guide gave plenty of historical information. Well worth the visit!

There are so many places in Vienna that you can check out, many are very historical. The Parliament Building is one of them and it's very close to Rathaus, just a walking distance.

Last time we were in Vienna, this building(like much of Vienna) was under scaffolding. This time we loved seeing the whole building and the statue of Athena out front is amazing! This building just embodies wisdom, justice, & government. The statues on the roof were also very beautiful!

This building along with the Rathaus (City Hall) are located side by side and both are a must see. The architecture of all the buildings in Vienna is stunning. Be sure to visit Volksgarten across the street as well.

Visited with family in Summer 2014. This is a lovely building both inside and out. Great value for money. Tour cost €11 for family of 4. The tour last an hour. The tour guide takes you round the different rooms in the building, including the different chambers and is very informative. Definitely worth a visit.

A nice big building with a lot of statues around. One of the nice buildings on the famous Ring. A huge Pallas Athene fountain is in front 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.
