A lovely Parliament

Situated next to the Rathaus, on the Ringstrasse, the Parliament is one of the most imposing buildings in Vienna.

This is a popular place for people to stop and take photos. The interior didn't seem to be open for viewing when I was there, but equally I didn't go to a great effort to ascertain the exact process for making such a visit.

I found the Greecian pillars ,sculptures and arches very attractive. Looked very much like the Parthenon in Athens. Well worth a visit.

This is a lovely building to walk past and admire, there is also gardens surrounding it. We didn't book in for a tour because the building was closed for the two days that we were there, but we would have booked on for it otherwise.

The Parliament building is beautiful from the outside, but it's also worth investigating the free tours, in English, that are offered on a frequent basis. Our guide was very informative and entertaining, and the inside of the building is just as beautiful as the outside. Tours are under one hour and you just walk into the lobby and sign up.... More

The parliament building is really nice and beautiful place that you must visit. It's cost 5 euro to get in and you'll get a guided tour at the place. You are allowed to take pictures as much as you want.

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.
