Built from 1874 to 1883 in the Greek style, the Parliament building is home to both houses of Austrian Parliament. Originally constructed for the Austria-Hungarian Imperial and Provincial delegations, in 1918 it became home of the Austrian National and Federal Parliament. The statue of Athena stands prominently at the front of the building.

Parliament is located on Ringstrasse next to the Palace of Justice, Natural History Museum, Hofburg, Wolksgarden, and the Rathaus.
