  • Garden and interesting buildings is hardly Shonbrunn ... the exhibition of Klimt's finest, small but comprehensive.

  • Walked to Belvedere from hotel on our arrival day. Nicely manicured ground. The famous image from the pond in the back entrance with Upper Belvedere is just magnificent. Good collection of art pieces ...  more »

  • Lovely from the outside and when you first walk into the upper Belvedere. Not so much past that. It was just an art gallery. And the best art gallery I've been to is the louvre in Paris and Victoria & Albert museum in London. Don't pay money to go inside, just admire it from the outside. It isn't worth the euros to go in.
  • There are two palace in Belvedere. There are just paintings in Upper Belvedere. There are also Klimt's paintings in Upper Belvedere. But this is very very small gallery, it couldn't be even a quarter of Louvre. However it is more expensive than Louvre. The entrance to Upper Belvedere is 15 euro. Audio guide is 4 euro. They put some advertisements about painters, Monet, Manet on their websites...but Manet has one painting in the gallery and Monet has 3. Also Renoir like that... Disappointed...
  • Very nice palace. Must've been a blast living into it during it's period. A bit to big for my personal taste. Too many windows to clean.
  • Visited the place in evening when it almost got dark. The lighting was spectacular. There was wedding going on so not sure if it was granites by the wedding event or it is there every evening.
  • A very culturally and historically developing place. Very good audio guide and impressive look of the rooms. Highly recommend if the high cost is not an issue.

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.
