An impressive parliament building; worth an hour for a guided tour at nominal entrance fee. Part of the original building was bombed in the Second World War and rebuilt in modern style but tastefully. The orignial building is about 150 years old and overall is far less impressive than similar buildings in other European cities such as Paris, London, Madrid... More

I really enjoyed looking at the sculpture outside the parliament building. Spend some time taking a close look, it's worth it.

My husband wanted to do this tour and I was a bit apprehensive but it was better than expected. A cheap your (€5 each) for just under an hour and our guide spoke both German and English fluently. Very interesting seeing the 3 main areas and learning about the Austrian parliament. Would recommend!

The tour is very cheap only 4 Euro a person or 2.5 Euro with a student ID. The building itself is magnificent and incredible to look at. Inside you get to see the different chambers including one of the chambers used by the government during the Austro-Hungarian Empire, it is the most Beautiful room there. The other chamber is more...

We were so lucky as we booked three e last (4pm) tour on a wet day & found ourselves the only 2 on it. Our private tour guide was extremely informative & v passionate about the building & what it stood for. The building is stunning inside & well worth the €5pp just to see it. However our wonderful guide... More

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
