Went there on our way to dinner. Nothing really special, really. It is a nice building but pale in comparison to other buildings in Vienna. I would skip it.

As like the whole city, the University is kind of sightseeing by itself! Wonderful architecture. The innergarden is really nice. An impressive University and a wonderful ambience. If you are close to the Rathaus you should definetly see it!

Strongly recommended! From outside it's looks splendid, but inside it's even more beautiful and interesting. You can buy a snack or take a coffee and have it in the lively inside garden with all the students. Also took a audio guide for 3eur - you...More

Her for the first time, I am very surprise to see a similar university. High and big buildings complete the university.

Visited on Tuesday 10th October. This has to be one of Vienna's grandest buildings, what an amazing place to learn at.

If you reach to Rathause you need to visit also this building. The x-mass market is unique also in December.

A wonderful example of architecture, centrally located and easy to get to. Very busy with subway , trams and main roads, so be prepared for lots of foot traffic from students and pedestrians. It is among quite a few other better known sites, but worthwhile...More

Beyond its obvious beauty and glamour, you should see just how centraly located it is, a true symbol of how important and high-regarded education was, and still is, in Austria. Massive and dominating building, yet delicate and lovely. Check it out.
