The former residence of Austrian Prince Eugene of Savoy, Belvedere Palace represents a historic complex housing important Austrian art. The two Baroque palaces, Upper and Lower Belvedere, are set in a park among decorative fountains and Baroque sculptures. Each palace is home to collections of expressionism, impressionism, contemporary art, medieval art, and Baroque art. The Upper Palace is best known for the Klimt Room, where you'll find an impressive exhibit of the works of Gustav Klimt, including "The Kiss." In addition to the two palaces, visit the orangery and the palace stables for an additional glimpse into Austrian art.

  • If you're a lover of Gustav Klimt's work this is a must see place. Even if you're not there are so many additional works that make this a must see if you're in Vienna.  more »

  • 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.
