The Belvedere is a beautiful palace in its own right but also houses a wonderful art collection. The views of the city from the Upper Belvedere are wonderful, the gardens are worth lingering in and the cafe on the ground floor of the Upper Belvedere serves an excellent breakfast should you need a rest.

Yes another wonderful palace with nicely tended gardens. But the main attraction for us was the Kiss by Klimt.

We spent about 3 and a half hours visiting the Upper and Lower Belvedere. The lower Belvedere did not have much art that we enjoyed. The upper belvedere, on the other hand, was a tremendous treasure of various painting by renown artists.

This is a palace where the royals sent things they did not want in the Hoffburg or Schoenbrun. It is really amazing! Plus it houses the worlds largest Klimpt collection!

I thought the grounds of the Belvedere Palace were beautiful! But, I didn't like that it was turned into a museum with many of it's original features taken away and turned modern. I'm not into art museums, so I didn't spend much time here. I was disappointed that such a historical place would be turned into something so modern and... More

Now this is a must during a vienna visit. The architecture is breathtaking and the grounds peaceful and beautiful. The gardens in the back are a huge attractions and the view beyond the gardens is spectacular.

This would be a nice afternoon visit to the edge of the city but allow enough time for transportation and tour. Not my favorite museum in Vienna but worth the visit. Beautiful Gardens. There's actually two museums (different buildings): Upper Belvedere and Lower Belvedere.

Expected it not to be soooo modern. But strolling through from the upper palace to the lower palace was worth every penny. Had expected to see more of the original interior at the lower palace but can understand it is a modern art museum. Worth a look.

The Belvedere is actually two magnificent museums with huge grounds between and around. It has an amazing collection of Klimt and his contemporaries and sponsees as well as an amazing number of portraits snd other paintings. You could spend an entire day, especially if the weather is hot or rainy. You can get there on the D tram, which goes... More
