It is easy to almost miss this building as it is tucked in close to many other major sights. Great statuary.

The Austrian Parliament Building in Vienna is where the two houses of the Austrian Parliament conduct their sessions. Parliament is not only the very heart of political activity. The historic Parliament Building breathes history and stories, art and noble architecture. Visitors can get a lively impression of how and where politicians are at work – as guests watching the debates... More

Wow. My fav building in this majestic city. Every time I walked by I saw something different. Worth the walk. Cross the street to really take it all in and walk about.

The architecture of the Rathaus in Vienna is impressive. The statue and fountain in front of it are perfect beauty. It is well connected with various means of transport.

A nice place, the building is surely very nice and quite impressing but, personally, I prefer the Rathaus one. In any case, it is always a nice walk along the Ringstrasse.

The parliament is very ease to find and identify. Unfortunately my time limited trip to Vienna meant I couldn't go inside here, but it's an imposing piece of architecture and a great place to stop and grab some more photos for the album.

The tour we went on was an Italian/English bilingual one: very impressive but a little off-putting at times! The parliament building is very impressive, designed in the nineteenth century by a Danish architect who based it on the Acropolis. The original House of Deputies stands as it did in Imperial times, and the tour guide described the chaotic political situation... More

The building is overwhelmingly fantastic, especially on its exterior. If you go on the Ring you can never miss it and the statues in front of it give it a majestic appearance. Deserves a stop on its own. I did not see it from inside as it was closed to public when I arrived, but the exterior is a masterpiece.

Visiting the parliament building was some what of a dissapointment as there are only two rooms on display and a hall connecting the two rooms. Should be for free as it is definitely not worth paying for the entrance.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
