The first thing I thought when I got there was "this is fantastic!" But then again, that's what I said throughout the whole visit to Vienna. Regrettably, some constrution work was going on so I didn't get to see it as its best.

The building itself is pretty impressive from outside. Unfortunately we had no idea it was accessible for public as there was no visible navigation:/ Well, maybe next time.

This is a magnificent building - both in terms of architectural details and in its' large size. It is located near the Rathaus and is surrounded by impressive monuments and statues. During the holiday season there is a great Christmas market nearby by the Rathaus and an ice skating rink in the Rathausplatz.

This Parliament building is one of the most beautiful ones I have ever seen! Not only is the architecture of it majestic but the statues that surround it add even more charm to it! Make sure to cross over to the flower garden! Entry fee is 2,5€ for student, 5€ for adults and you can get a very interesting 50... More

A most impressive building from the outside, we went to go on a tour but as luck would have it there was a debate in parliament on the day we chose to go so there were no tours. I suppose we were unlucky to choose a day that MP's actually do some work a rare thing I suspect if they... More

Do not miss this, you book at the office at the front of the building, it was €5 each for a guided tour. The buiding is absolutely stunning and the scale is truly impressive indeed. In the colonnaded hall we felt totally dwarfed by the sheer size of it all. Our tour guide was Robert who spoke perfect english, knew... More

The building is located on the Ringstraße boulevard in the first district Innere Stadt, near Hofburg Palace and the Palace of Justice. It was built to house the two chambers of the Imperial Council, the bicameral legislature of the Cisleithanian (Austrian) part... More

Beautiful and very well decorated building close to the Rathaus city hall. It has a great location. They have a very nice tour inside Parliament @ 5 Euroes which is completely worth the money. You should see this place through a walking tour of the city.

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.
