The Kiss is presented at the Upper Palace in Belvedere Palace. That was my first time there and I truly love Klimt's works, especially "The Kiss". I am glad that I went there.

Did not do the museum inside. The Upper palace from the front looked nice. the back was well maintained but not many flowers so not as impressive.

We only had time to walk around the gardens and admire the outside and have a coffee and cake here but it was lovely. Well worth the time. We are hoping to return in another season and spend more time both inside and outside.

I was very disappointed in my visit to the Belvedere. The grounds are beautiful, but I was horrified at how they have totally ripped everything out of such old and beautiful palaces. After visiting the Schonbrunn, I couldn't believe how this could have happened to the Belvedere. There were only about 5 rooms that had been kept and restored to... More

Elegant rooms with an interesting painting exhibition. Especially the paintings of the prestigious Gustav Klimt with his polular painting " the kiss".

I prefer the collection at the Belvedere over the Leopold because it's not quite so large and overwhelming. If the weather is nice, be sure to walk the gardens, even though they are in serif need of attention from the gardeners!

Most palaces of this era have similar imposing structures (this one has a distinctive green top half) and large geometrically-designed gardens in the style of Henry 8th's Hampton Court so there is a sense of deja vu on visiting yet another European Palace. I was really more interested in the art collection so visited only Upper Belvedere. Gustav Klimt's "The... More

A lazy stroll through the breathtaking garden is highly recomended. The lush green sarroundings intercepted by beautiful fountains is very relaxing. Did not have time to visit the art collection but the palace grounds did take our breath away.

This is an art museum residing in a former palace. Of course, the big attraction is Gustov Klimpt's "The Kiss". Although very nice and interesting, it does not have the number of high impact pieces seen in other major cities such as Paris and New York. But, I was exposed to and learned much more about more eastern European artists... More

Beautiful Palace with opulent gardens. Another wonderful place to visit in Vienna. The facade with colorful flowers and fountains are gorgeous.
