This building is situated on the ringstrasse near the Rathaus and a short walk fro Maria Theresinplatz. It is an impressive building that seems to have Greek inspired centre section and as such stands out from the usual architectural style in Vienna.

The Parliament Building seems to be the meeting spot for so many people - locals and tourists alike. The architecture of the building is truly impressive. The building itself is mammoth. You will see it from far away and the place still looks huge. It is a beautiful building that shows the pride and the quality of the Austrian people.

We only saw this building from the outside. The Imposing building is another architectural marvel one can find in Vienna.

The Greek style reminds the passerby that democracy was born in Greece. There are many details. While pictures are great from the ring road it's well worth a walk up the stairs.

We only saw this from the outside and we walked around it. It's one of the most beautiful buildings I've seen in a city. Definitely worth a visit.

Vienna's Parliament House is a stately building with beautiful mosiac pictures, which you can see only if you climb up the stairs.

The copies of ancient Greek statues are around the garden of the building. ATHENA the central statue is the copy of the Golden Statue of Athena inside of the Parthenon. I like and I feel proud as a Greek.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood 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 centre. 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.
