The Athena Fountain (Pallas-Athene-Brunnen) in front of Austrian Parliament Building Vienna Austria

With so much to see and do in Vienna, Austria, a two- or three-day vacation won’t cut it. You must at least stay for one whole week to make the most out of the city’s highlights.

One of the distinguished attractions here is the Austrian Parliament Building, which is located near the Palace of Justice and Hofburg Palace. Built in 1883, the structure was designed by Theophil Hansen. A top feature of the building is the Pallas Athena Fountain erected on the main entrance. This was built from 1893 to 1902 by sculptors Hugo Haerdtl, Carl Kundmann and Josef Tautenhayn. But the design is also by Hansen.
