A beautiful building, one of the many in Vienna, even allowing for the fact that there is work ongoing at the moment which somewhat obscures a full view. Very close to the Volkspark at the back of the Hofburg and close also to the Rathaus....More

The building design was inspired by the Zappeion hall in Athens because of its link with democracy and legality. It is ornately decorated with marble statues and reliefs rich in symbolism. The entrance is particularly impressive with its two ramps and fountain with a statue...More

There appears to be renovations/refurbishments on-going & the building is screened off from the road, shame.

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
