The Building and Guided Tours
Parliament is not only the very heart of political activity. The historic Parliament Building breathes history and stories, art and noble architecture. Visitors can get a lively impression of how and where politicians are at work – as guests watching the debates in the National and Federal Councils and in some committees, or through guided tours catering for diverse interests that give you insights into the special features of the Parliament Building and Palais Epstein.
The Austrian Parliament offers its visitors a choice of guided tours that give insights into its day-to-day political work, historical details and architectural features. The tours, which take approximately one hour, cater for different interests and age groups.
How do Members of the National and Federal Councils work? What happens in the course of a National Council sitting? How do committees work? Visitors will get answers to these questions when they attend sittings.
A guided tour of Palais Epstein is a short but fascinating journey through 130 years of Austria’s history. Do you want to learn why? More
