Beautiful building

We approached from the back end of the building and were already impressed. The front is absolutely beautiful. A definite must see in Vienna.

This is one of the "must-see" buildings in Vienna. I have never been inside, but outside is already quite impressive and definitely worth visiting.

It's a very nice building and we snapped some pics as we walked by, but compared to some of the other buildings in Vienna, it was "just another building".

On the suggestion of my wife, we decided to visit here. Tours are in English/Spanish and French/German. Our guide, Iniesta, was very informative, telling us about the history of Government in Austria as well as the building. We were taken everywhere in the building, and even allowed to sit on seats in the main chambers - can you imagine that... More

The most unique and different architecture in the city of Vienna Looks similar to a Greek work of art on it

A photo cannot come close to showing how overwhelmingly grand this building is. Standing out front made me feel like a mere mortal petitioning the gods.

This is a really nice building for photos. The statues are excellent, as are the basic structure. Most people take lots of pictures, and lots of close-ups of their loved ones near the main statue. The D-Tram covers this building, and many others too. Many buses go by too.

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.
