When I hear of this palace I immediately think of Gustav Klint's "The Kiss". An entrancing painting that you won't stop starting at. Opulent rooms that are Habsburg royalty to the max.

Breathtaking view, from inside and from outside, the most signifcant paintings of Klimt (e.g. "The Kiss") are there, Kokoscha, Schiele, more interesting than Leopold Museum.

We took the Hop on Hop off Bus to the Palace which made it easy to get to. The palace and the gardens were fine but not as special as others we had visited. We mainly wanted to see the art works and particularly that of Gustav Klimt. There were only a few of his works showing but all the... More

The palace is beautiful. Gardens are being cut so not perfect. It's worth a visit. We got so ripped off at the restaurant near the entrance called Restaurant Biem Belvedere. Greek food, offered us the "special" and got a bill for 101 euros. I think the special was 75 euros. Really they con tourists. Read the negative reviews.

This place is beautiful, from the pond and statues in the front to the enormous grounds in the back. Get there early so you have time to take in all of the grounds, as well as the museum inside which houses the worlds largest collection of Gustav Klimt artwork showcased in the beautiful interior of the palace, don't forget to...

While I would recommend a visit to Belvedere for the sheer grandiose experience, I was disappointed that there were only a few Klimt pieces of art on offer. If you catch a tram, be prepared for the long walk up through the beautiful grounds of the former palace.

After having visited Schonbrunn Palace & the Hofburg Palace, my wife & I toured Belvedere on Friday 5/9, mostly because we wanted to see Gustav Klimt's famous gilded painting, "The Kiss," in the palace's museum. There it was, along with several other of his remarkable works, plus - unexpectedly - Andy Warhol's 1963, 50-minute silent video "Kiss," which we felt... More

The palace is nice to visit although I wouldn't list it on the top 5 places to visit in Vienna. The staff was quite rude and unfriendly. We had the worst experience at the bistro where the waiter was not polite and unresponsive.

After visiting other palaces and museum in Vienna we were rather disappointed here. This museum is entirely given over to art and mostly very modern art. We really loved the Klimt paintings but there was no information about what the rooms of this old palace were like or were used for, except the stables. The gardens were not as well... More
