Nice pics

Nice pictures to be taken but then moved on. We passed it in the evening so didn't know if it was opened. Architecture is stunning as is it all in Vienna.

The architecture of the building is impotent. You feel proud of what the humans can do. For sure inside the decision are way too far more important compared to the beauty of the building.

The monumental building imitates the classical Greek style. The whole structure and the superb fountain in front of it (with the representation of the goddess of wisdom, Athene) are grandiose and you can understand easily from their scale and beauty that Vienna was truly a Capital of an Empire. We didn't take the inside tour because we arrived to late,... More

We didn't pay to enter the building but glad we didn't based on other TA reviews. It is however worth a visit just to take in the wonderful architecture.

While the exterior is beautiful and very Greek, this Parthenon-inspired building isn't worth the 5 Euro entrance fee and guided tour, especially since there's nothing spectacular inside. Simply admire from the outside this structure that houses the 2 houses of the Austrian legislature, then move on. You can get here by taking trams 1 or 2 that goes along the... More

The tour is very well organized and the staff is very helpful, especially the guide who was very friendly with children. The building is impressive too with lots of artwork. We really enjoyed it and would recommend a visit to the Parliament building in Vienna. The entrance is from a glass door behind the statue of Athena.
