“Amazing looking building from the Outside”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

When we walked by the first time there was a protest going on in front of the building when we came back by it a second time and were able to get a little closer. The sculptures and artwork integrated into the architecture is worth a closer look.

“Vienna parliament”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic architecture, daily guided tours available, well worth a visit, especially when it's too hot or wet to walk around outside.

“Gorgeous building”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

It is such a gorgeous building, and as i am an architect, i connected with it at a different level! The building is perfectly symmetrical with chariots on the terrace level, beautiful sculptures on the pediment. The Athene fountain was gorgeous and very very picturesque... I'm totally in love with the building....

We stopped for not too long a time as we were heading out to Budapest and it was a Sunday, so we could not get to go inside and see, but will definitely do that in the next trip!

“Beautiful architecture!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We stopped by on our way out of Vienna for awhile and it was a good thing we did. The architecture is stunning. I got a little picture crazy and we didn't get a chance to go inside but I would check it out next time i'm in town!

“Beautiful architecture and fountain!!!!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

The parliament building is a architectural jewel. It has nice fountain outside like Triveni in
The fountain is quite relaxing and you can tske pictures here with friends or family.
We went inside and could not get the guided tour as a session was going on inside the parliament building and rhey had discontinued the guided tour till June 14th.
We just looked at the building from inside and came out.
