  • Magnificent architectural masterpiece with Greek touches. Many terminations figures with its golden capital reflecting notably with the Sun

  • So important a building which, however, does not like the best experience. I do not know what the Viennese have in passion or in habit. But, unfortunately, another by the beautiful building which from the frontal side roads is not the applicant and disfigure the platform. To the intense traffic and buzz. And nothing does not remember the reception of the tourist attraction. Too bad.

  • Compulsory to visit place in Vienna! You will be amazed by the beauty and grandeur of this place. The magnificent complex of sculptures and the perfection of architecture will not leave you indifferent. And from here you can walk along the Ringenshtrasse to the Town Hall and relax in the shady Park.

  • This building is actually more fascinating than Hofburg and Schönbrunn palaces.
  • Can go in on 26th of Oct, Austrian national Day. But u will have to wait few hours in a irregular queue :) to get into it. But trust me it worths giving a try ...
  • Beautiful on the outside! Wish I could've taken a tour or have been able to walk through it
  • Beautiful parliament building with great informative tours. Would recommend!
  • Simply beautiful architecture, interesting history and good location in the center of Vienna.

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
