Each palace is home to collections of expressionism, impressionism, contemporary art, medieval art, and Baroque art.

  • One of the nicest palaces that I ever visited. It has a front and back garden and the palace is divided in two buildings, the Upper and the Lower. The palace is easily accessible by tram (some 1 minute walk away). The jewel has a number of big rooms which are used to display some nice fine art and also sculpture. Even the gardens (which are free to visit) are nice and a good place to relax. There are restrooms, a cloak room and also some lockers to use. A cafeteria is also available. It is very interesting and highly recommended.
  • Beautiful Palace with a nice historic public garden. Inside the Palace you will find a big Art Collection. You will find paintings and Sculptures from the medieval times and Baroque. Also a big Collection of Paintings from the impressionism and expressionism. Including Klimt's The Kiss if you are a fan of it :-) The Art Collection includes also contemporary pieces. You should have at least two hours time for walking through the Museum! Pic 1 is a gorgeous bust of Franz Xaver Messerschmidt.
  • It was nice to go for a walk here, but the gardens could be better tended to, and the art was... to put it mildly... not at all to my taste. Why put that horrible stuff in front of that beautiful palace? Some information signs would be appreciated. Overall a nice place to go for a walk and enjoy the weather.
  • Belvedere palace is awe inspiring. It is a historic building consisting of two Baroque palaces, Orangerie and Stables. It also houses one of Austria's most valuable collections. I will highly advise to walk around the park to enjoy the sightseeing. It is breathtaking!!!
  • A truly stunning palace with a wonderful array of art. Arrive early, for it fills up quickly, even out of the main holiday seasons. The excellent breakfast is a taste of Vienna €12.10 at the time of writing. €15 entry, at time of writing.
