They are very open with you on the tour and you can sit in the parliamentarian's chairs. My mic device didn't work properly so I couldn't always hear what the guide was saying but it's a very comprehensive tour and well worth it.

Greek style architecture with sculptures of Hellenic style. Definitely you want to stop by to see and take some pictures. The area around is great to take a walk and there is a plaza where the city sometime holds a festival so great place to eat and chill too!

Wonderful architecture, only saw from the outside. Passing by on a bus tour, will make it a place to visit properly.

With its Greek style, statues, fountain, and columns, this building is a real piece of art. It's one of the must see while you are walking Vienna.

Worth the walk to see this stunning building, add it to your list. On the way to the Rathaus (Town Hall) It's a easy walk across the park from Hero's square and then another couple of hundred metres to the Rathaus.

The Parliament building which located along Ring Strasse should be one of the "must see" sight for tourists. The Greek Temple structure was built in neo-classic style with Greek Goddess Pallas Athena, to symbolize the importance of "democracy" in the country. A really impressive building to visit during our tour in the city. Should you have time, entry to view... More

This was the most impressive building we saw on our walks along the Ring Strasse. Looked to me that it had both Greek and Roman styling. Did not go in for a tour but was told that it only cost 3 euros. Definitely worth stopping to gaze if you are walking the Strasse.

The Parlament Building is a great classic-style place with it's own interesting history. Trips are for german and english-speeking people. The guids will tell u some facts not only about this building but also about the city, country and Habsburg dynasty. Tickets online or in cashbox - cost: 2,5/5,0 euro Worth to see!

Thank Krzysztof D

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.
