  • A pretty Palace, little maintained garden, however in April, but beautiful paintings. Go not for the Klimt rooms

  • A stop very nice to do if you're in Vienna. The gardens are at their best in spring and summer and it is when the weather. Do not visit Vienna in winter because 1. You congelaréis and 2. You lose the grace (who has a lot in summer).

  • 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.
