Athenian-Style Authority

Constructed at the end of the 19th century, the sprawling Greek-revival Parliament Building has survived the violence and bombs of two world wars. This is where the tumultuous days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire were manifested in political warfare and a populist uprising. Today, the building’s regal exterior is matched by its stately interior—get an intimate look at the workplace of Austria’s modern politicians with an hour-long guided tour (€5, in English or German) that takes you through richly furnished rooms of marble and gold. Be sure to check out the famous Pallas-Athene Fountain, which lies at the front of the building. Next to the fountain is a posh new visitors’ center featuring interactive displays that are free of charge. The Parliament Building is easily accessible from the Volkstheater station (U2 and U3 lines).
