Imposing building in the centre of Vienna

We did not go into Parliament, but the outside is still worth seeing. Many statues and a glorious fountain. It's across the street from the Volksgarten and the Hofburg.

Quite cheap. Family ticket was just €8. We went for the English tour but it was mixed with the German one. Not sure what the guide was saying in German but it was much more than she said in Englsh. If you are going to do it in English then do it properly. If you don't then don't bother.

With things the way they are it is rare to actually get into a parliament building these days and be prepared for airport type security at the start of the tour. Fascinating experience with interesting information given by guide. Chance to get photos in two debating chambers. Well worth a visit to this historical place.

We went after business hours, so we couldn't do a guided tour. But we chilled near the fountain, took some great pictures in the sunset, and admired our surrounding views from the top of the steps.

It's a very nice looking building and I'd recommend doing the guided tour as the tour guide was very knowledgeable and you see lots.

The building along with the statue of Athene out front is stunning, when we strolled past the building there was no access into the interior of the building.... So you will need to consult other reviews on this... But I was so taken with The Pallas Athene statue, I was so glad we had taken the five minute walk from... More

The guided tour of the Austrian Parliament is an absolute must when in Vienna. I can't believe it has taken me until now to actually go on it, but I'm just so glad I did! You don't need to be particularly interested in politics; this is rather more of an integral part of Austria's fascinating history. As someone who has... More

The architecture of the building is exceptional. The statues in front is also awesome. Everything is well maintained. On other side of Volksgarten.

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.
