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.

All the times we have been to Vienna we never visited Parliament. This year we took advantage of a family member being an employee and had a great tour of the place. Very educational and much more than we expected.

Vienna has so many buildings & museums. Selection of what all to visit is often pretty tough. We are still glad for selecting this tour. Had a wonderful guide who took us through the entire history of Austria, world war, & the Democratic setup. The building is regal and purposeful. Was an excellent tour

We had a couple of hours to spare so thought we'd give the tour a go. It was well worth the €5 charge to see the interior of such a beautiful building and hear a little about its history. Our tour guide was very informative and happy to answer any questions. In total, the tour lasted about 50 minutes.

The brilliant thing about the austrian parlament is that they arrange guided tours in differnet languages . From the outside it looks like someting taken directly from Akropolis, but when you get to know that it has been built by a danish architect , you start wondering , until you realise he spent several years in Athens . Fantastic pillar... More
