"The Austrian Parliament Building" Ringstrasse Tip by lmkluque

Ringstrasse, Vienna: 174 reviews and 287 photos

 
 

This is a beautiful example of Greek Revival architecture, outside and inside the harmony is evident. It is huge and really impressive. It took almost ten years to build.

Originally it was built to house the Imperial Council. It is the largest building on Ringstraße boulevard and located near the Palace of Justice and the Hofburg.

It has served through years of peace and war but since 1918, meetings of the National and Federal Parliament have been held here.
