  • This Parliament building is one of the most beautiful ones I have ever seen! Not only is the architecture of it majestic but the statues that surround it add even more charm to it! Make sure to cross over to the flower garden!
  • 2,5€ for student, 5€ for adults and an very interesting 50 minutes guided tour through the Parliament (the two chambers and the old Parliament).
  • If you come to Vienna you need to visit building of Parlament. Architecture of this place is amazing. One advice- visit this building during the day and also during the night because of the lights...everything looks different at night
  • Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. A MUST if you're in Vienna. The tour is just 5 euros (less if you're a student) and full of fascinating info about the building and the Austrian political system.
  • Not that big as some parliaments but one of the most beautiful I've been. Classical architecture is always the best.
