  • An art museum, daas as architectural monument is itself extraordinary. This combination is unique here. The overview of European art history is well documented, the artworks of the Fin-de-siècle exceptionally. And many Werkkombimationen are really enlightening, z.b. The Saxon Switzerland by Friedrich in comparison to other romanticists. And who has ever wondered where Klimt of his Art Deco style who must consider only the premises. This is at least part of the answer.

  • One of the must see's of Vienna, amazing rooms and history, lots to see and very busy when we were there so try to get there early  more »
  • The Obere and Untere Belvedere, connected by a large garden. Now mainly used as a museum with paintings. The most famous painting the Kiss by Gustav Klimt is there to see and also the other famous painter Egon Schiele.

  • Nice sculptures everywhere. You can see lots of art masterpieces of the great artists like Gustav Klimt here. If you like paintings this is one of best places offering the best artworks of their Era. Includes a perfect botanic garden.
  • This is a magical place. The grounds are beautiful and set on top of a hill so give great views of the city especially at sunset. The grounds are free to use but also try the museum it has original pieces from 'Klimt the kiss' and some other true masterpieces.
  • Another must-visit palace in Vienna. Belvedere is home to some amazing art and paintings. While I'm a science major, I still appreciated the beauty. Even without the audio guide, i was able to enjoy the art pieces on display, although i'd definitely recommend the audioguide if you have the money/time to spare. The palace gardens are free for visitors and is very picturesque as well... Except for the "fat house". That thing is just hideous and needs to be removed...
  • Building is amazing. Klimt exhibition side by side with influences is very interesting. Not crowded.
  • Great palace. I went there for a concert and performance. Facilities are out standing.

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
