The busiest Christmas markets are set either side of this complex and it is interesting to pass from the bustle of these by the grandeur of the Parliament Building. Unfortunately the impressive looking fountain was covered for winter.

Travelling round the ringstrasse you cannot but be impressed by Austria's Parliament building. It classical design is embellished with subtle gilding and adorned with some outstanding sculptures. On our next visit we hope to go inside.

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.
