Designed by Theophil von Hansen, the same architect who created the plans for Austria’s national Parlament, Palais Epstein houses part of the Austrian national parliament and you can take tours (in German) through its hallowed halls (the glass atrium rises an impressive four floors) and visit its bel étage rooms. The only way to see inside is by taking a tour.

With a filigree ceiling of gold lacework and circular frescos (Hansen based it on detail in the Santa Maria dei Miracoli in Venice), the Spielzimmer (play room) is one highlight. There are no tours when the parliament is in session.
