The Austrian Parliament: An Architectural Jewel This Tour is suitable as a walking TourThis Tour is ideal for school parties
A Danish Architect's Masterpiece

Recent refurbishment has turned the Austrian Parliament into one of the architectural gems of the Ringstrasse boulevard again. No one passing by can help but admire it. On this illustrated walk we want to take a closer look at it, study the architectural inspirations and concepts of its architect Theophil Hansen, and decipher the iconography of this late 19th century masterpiece. The buildings surrounding it are also worth a second look: Palais Epstein next door was once the grand home of one of the wealthiest Jewish banking families in town. After the Second World War it served the Soviet occupation forces as Headquarters. Not far away lies the impressive neo-Renaissance "Palace of Justice" (Justizpalast). Gutted in the course of riots in 1927, it served the Allied city government as "Commandatura"T today it is the seat of the Supreme Court of Austria.

Meeting Point:In front of the Parliament (Athena Fountain) (U2/U3 Volkstheater, exit Bellaria) or by arrangement
