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.

Belvedere Palace reviews
In addition to the museum, there is a garden where walking is free and you can stay there as long as you want. There is a statue at the back of this building that I have photographed.Legend has it... more »
If you are a Gustav Klimpt and Art Nouveau fan like I am, this is an absolute must see. That was in the Upper Belvedere, the Lower Belvedere was closed for renovation when I was there. more »
We expected to get to know at least something from the history of Habsburg family. Belvedere as one of their main seats should show much more than just a gallery. From their way of living or interior.... more »
THE MUST GO in Vienna. Amazing palace. The greatest museum of the city. Very impressive architecture and stunning gardens. In the museum you will be able to see many of Klimt s masterpieces with most important the famous "the Kiss" and "Athena". Have a nice walk at the gardens and the pond. At Christmas period enjoy the Christmas village at the front of the museum. Absolutely fabulous place.
I love that it shows other less popular paintings of Gustav Klimt - like the ones before he found his signature 'gold paintings'. It's profound to see and appreciate 'The Kiss' up close. The Lower Belvedere was closed when I visited.
The best thing about this place is the botanical garden. It’s rich in diversity and is especially beautiful in spring! It costs nothing to go there, sit down on a bench and enjoy nature. You will find trees hundreds of years old, rare flowers from all over the world, a succulent garden, a goldfish pond, and (for a small fee) a Japanese garden. 💙😊
Another museum very well organized! Pick up tickets to all the levels or only one. Prices are fair. Very well organized for ticket purchase, directions to the museum levels and coat check. Audio guide available in many languages for extra cost. Free wifi. Tickets can be purchased online for ease of entry. Beautiful building with amazing paintings and sculptures! Security very active in enforcing photography ( allowed or not ), too close to painting, touching, etc. Surrounding gardens are free and beautiful!!
One of the world's finest baroque palaces so it's a must visit when you're in Vienna. Very impressive architecture and beautiful garden. It's free to visit the gardens so take advantage of that. A wonderful piece of art
