“A beautiful building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

We loved this building! It was both impressive and beautiful. It, as many other buildings do in Vienna, makes the place look incredible

“impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Austrian Parliament building is where the 2 houses of Austria conduct their sessions. this building is close to the Ringstradt boulevards near the Holfburg palace and the palace of justice. The building stone work is very distinct and striking. Good photo opportunities but I managed to get one from a distance unfortunately. There are a number of statues out side the building. We were given a guided tour from the outside of this building but didn't go inside. This is a very impressive building. One can easily view this when visiting the Holfburg palace. Austria is full of history so the buildings are unique with architecture and lots of sculptors and statues

“Beautiful building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

The stonework is very striking and this is a great building to get some nice pictures of as the sky is mostly uncluttered behind it (good for cloudy shots, sunsets, etc.). I didn't get to go inside as it was closed when I was there, but I would have loved to take the tour. 4 stars just for being a very neat building from the outside and a good photo opportunity in a city full of them!

“Impressive building to view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

From the park opposite, this building seems very impressive and worth taking a walk across the road to take a closer look, even though the road can be busy, but do make sure you take some good photos from the park and get the whole building in all its glory.

At night this is well lit and equally impressive.

“Beautiful! don't miss the guided tour inside!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

I took the guided tour and it was very wise thing to do as the inside of the building is absolutely stunning (especially the ancient Greek style of architecture motives .there's is no need to order a ticket in advance (if i remember correctly the ticket price was 6 Euros), just buy a ticket 10 min before the guided tour begins.the tour duration is about 55 minutes.I highly recommend to take the guided tour as it's completely a different experience to see the building from the inside and not only from the outside.definitely an excellent experience and value for money.
