The only other building that even comes close to be as aesthetically offensive is the Altare della Patria in Rome - a literally monumental-level architectural failure. One has to see the Viennese version to really grasp how offensive to the eye and soul it is. Intermixing a dozen or more styles, with gold-laced statues, it is the very opposite of... More

Impressive building, parliamentarians know how to raise themselves to the people. In this case, the entrance of the building is artificially raised above the ground. On the other hand you’ll see a good view of the nearby sights =)

This is a very impressive building with a lot of details, making the person standing on the road small and negligible comparing to the size of the sculptures

This must be one of the more open parliament buildings. Take a tour for 5 Euros an get to sit in the seats that the MPs actually use! Make sure that you make time to watch the historical presentation in the visitors/press suite as this gives a very understandable and well presented summary of recent Austrian history. The building suffered... More

The parliament building is one of the oldest architecture and thus, can be visited. Nothing really spectacular but if you have extra time, you can visit this place.

This is a huge fountain. I climb to the top of it and got a good view of a bicycle race. Take the trolley it drops you off in front.

This is the heart of the Austrian democracy, it is worth to be seen, as part of the central complex. however it is relatively new / for the European standards of course/ and has not a substantial input into the history of this part of the continent. Much more important decisions have been taken on the other sind of the... More

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.
