Looks a bit unusual for a parliament but in a good way. Viewed from the pavement it looks so huge and colossal. It's in the heart of the city, next to the City Hall.

Interesting place to visit. Ticket is for 5 euros for an hour long tour - it's in German and English. Ceilings are beautiful! Artwork on the walls and marble pillars tell a lot about its history. Tour also takes you the modern part of parliament currently in use. You see the old and the new.

Unfortunately our visit to Vienna did not afford us the time to tour the Parliament building but we were glad we saw it on our walk around Vienna. It is huge and very impressive. Even if you do not have time for a tour I highly suggest you include it in your "must sees" in Vienna.

Very nice and historical building which holds current Austrian parliaments. Tours are available for tourists. You can visit the halls where the Upper and Lower Houses of the Parliament meet currently. You can also visit the hall which held the meetings of the Empire's parliament. An interesting tour to the recent history, very nice art relics. There is a room... More

While the Parliament Building is extremely impressive from the outside, I cannot emphasize enough how good the guided tour is. At a cost of just Euro 5 per person, this one hour tour (conducted by a single guide speaking both German and English) is absolutely worth it. If you aren't politically inclined and therefore apprehensive, I would say there's no... More

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
