This is a lovely building to walk past and admire, there is also gardens surrounding it. We didn't book in for a tour because the building was closed for the two days that we were there, but we would have booked on for it otherwise.

The Parliament building is beautiful from the outside, but it's also worth investigating the free tours, in English, that are offered on a frequent basis. Our guide was very informative and entertaining, and the inside of the building is just as beautiful as the outside. Tours are under one hour and you just walk into the lobby and sign up.... More

The parliament building is really nice and beautiful place that you must visit. It's cost 5 euro to get in and you'll get a guided tour at the place. You are allowed to take pictures as much as you want.

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!

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.

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

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.
