    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 »

    Nice sculptures everywhere. You can see lots of art masterpieces of the great artists like Gustav Klimt here. If you like paintings this is one of best places offering the best artworks of their Era. Includes a perfect botanic garden.

    This is a magical place. The grounds are beautiful and set on top of a hill so give great views of the city especially at sunset. The grounds are free to use but also try the museum it has original pieces from 'Klimt the kiss' and some other true masterpieces.

    Another must-visit palace in Vienna. Belvedere is home to some amazing art and paintings. While I'm a science major, I still appreciated the beauty. Even without the audio guide, i was able to enjoy the art pieces on display, although i'd definitely recommend the audioguide if you have the money/time to spare. The palace gardens are free for visitors and is very picturesque as well... Except for the "fat house". That thing is just hideous and needs to be removed...

    Building is amazing. Klimt exhibition side by side with influences is very interesting. Not crowded.

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.
