Quite different from the Gothic style of most of the architecture in Vienna, this is where the two houses of the Austrian Parliament conduct their sessions.

This building is most imporressive at night when it is illuminated and I think that brings out the best of the architecture.

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

We stopped by the Parliament building before the Volksgarten after visiting Rathaus. Unfortunately the building is under construction so there is lots of dust / scaffolding and cranes. Don't despair as there are plenty of other things in the area to get photos of!

This building looked very impressive and we would have liked to see inside. However, it is surrounded by scaffolding and I understand it is being refurbished. You get a good glimpse of the front from the Volksgarten.

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
