  • It is of great interest for lovers of Klimpt and the Impressionists. Approximate organization, thank goodness there is a bar to enjoy great coffee or hot chocolate and typical sweets.

  • The Belvedere is a magnificent palace complex in Vienna. Two Baroque palaces face each other on a sloping hill. Between the palaces lies a formal French garden with fountains, statues and cascades. 
  • It was in December. The weather was sunny. But still sad. Fountains don't work. Everything is grey. But in August (too). Then beauty. Guess outdoors enthusiasts will enjoy the sculptures. In winter, the upper Belvedere Palace is well worth a visit. Get ready, that even in winter there will be a lot of people. I think everybody wants to see paintings by Gustav Klimt. You will see and please, but also disappointed. Because they are very few. One the semi-dark room. On a black background looks, of course, Kiss. Other halls for connoisseurs of painting.

  • Worth the visit! The tour can include visits to art galleries, fixed and itinerant (where photos are not allowed!). It has a beautiful esplanade with two large gardens. The back has a lake, very beautiful too.
  • The building and the gardens were more beautiful and more worth it than the exhibitions inside the palace itself. The lower Belvedere part is not worth the money one pays for a ticket. The exhibition in Upper Belvedere I found a bit badly organised - a poor combination of late 19th to early 20th century items with modern art installations, which I personally found too incompatible.
  • Very nice gallery if you like artists like klimt. Famous painting "the kiss" can be found here. Parks and fountains are beautful. If you want to walk around the gardens it is better to come during cooler days because trees are not very tall, hence their is little shade.
  • i went there 2 month ago it was verey intresting place great museum and beautiful park
  • Really liked the lower palace and the gardens. The view from the upper palace was good, apart from that it was just okay.
