  • I'm not really a big art lover but it was amazing to walk through the exhibitions. Seeing Klimt's work in real life was such a great pleasure. There is some unfinished work of his as well which gives great insight into how he created his works. The exhibitions take you through various art periods from the middle ages all the way up to present. worth a visit and was really not expensive.
  • Fantastic palace and beautiful gardens. I'm a fan of Gustav Klimtz so that was my main motivation for the visit. Enjoyed seeing his famous painting, The Kiss as well as some other wonderful art. Audio guide was excellent and provided great insight and information into some of the more famous artists and paintings. Not to crowded which was a plus.
  • 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.
  • An imperial palace set in manicured gardens. Today it's a huge oasis in the middle of a busy city. Once you get inside you can see exhibitions of world class art or just admire the building's ornate interior. If you visit Vienna without seeing it you haven't really visited Vienna at all.
  • One more monumental place for visit in Vienna. Beautiful palace with garden and incredible view. Story behind this baroque palaces and Habsburg dynasty that lived here is one more reason to visit this place. In the complex you can also visit the museum. For sure place you must visit in Vienna.
