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!

Vienna has some very beautiful and ornate buildings, and the parliament is a premiere example. The roman columns and statues give a sense of grandeur without overwhelming neighbouring buildings. Definitely worth a leisurely meander and the university of vienna campus.

A tour of Vienna will never be complete without a visit to the Parliament.The architectural marvel overshadows it's sarroundings. A guided tour is available ever hour,if short of time do visit the beautiful greek styled architecture and click some memorable pictures.

Clean lines and across from the BurgGarten. A must see sight from the road right on the Ringstrasse adjacent to City Hall. A must see sight from the street.
