The Vienna Parliament building, seat of politics in Austria is a magnificent palace dating from 1883. One can view it easily from the Ringstrasse - either walk or take one of the trams which are very frequent. The architecture has borrowed heavily from Greek style, modeled on a Greek temple with a statue of Athena at the entrance. The building... More

For a house of politicians, it's very attractive. Soon to be closed (May 2017) for extensive refurbishment, so go take a look soon.

Done in a Greek style (even with a statue of Athena in front) this is home to the Austrian Paliament. Good for a photo opportunity.

We are lucky to join the guided tour this time as the guide told us that the building is closing down for 2 years starting July 2017 for renovation purpose. We can assess almost everywhere in the building and even try sitting on the Chairman's place.

A friendly greeting at the ticket office, brilliant guide and an unforgettable tour of parliament. For a Brit who can't get near our parliament it was incredible to be able to sit in both houses. The building is fabulous - inside and out. It is about to be renovated so this was nearly the last chance to tour it for... More

I was waiting for the bus and then went inside the Parliament building out of curiosity. It was very impressive in terms of the layout of the building and the numbers of leaflets written in numerous European languages describing the workings of the Parliament.

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.
