Worth reading up beforehand, and checking whether you wish to visit Upper Belvedere, Lower Belvedere or both - and then which tram route to take. We only had time for the Upper one, which had a wide range of art including the painting of the Kiss by Klimt that most visitors want to see. Great architecture and view over the... More

After seeing the wonderful paintings in the permanent exhibition in the Upper Belvedere, we were not sure if we had time to visit the current exhibition in the Orangery. We decided to go and what a joy, - Klimts and Monets from all over the world, that we would not otherwise have had a chance to see. Superb!!

"Kiss" painting by Gustav Klimt is magnificent, you miss a lot if not see it. In the garden, have a mirror in between for you to make a perfect selfi between lower and upper Belvedere

Well having not planned our Vienna trip, we ended up walking through the grounds in order to find our hotel, at that point we loved them even during a gloomy winters morning. Later we returned and visiting the upper house to see The Kiss, a well presented gallery and enjoyable. Then walking round the gardens in the dusk/night was lovely... More

I am not a particular lover of modern art and am not, therefore, qualified to give a review. the building itself is very grand and typical of what an extremely wealthy man would build for himself. Fortunately, it has been preserved as a museum.

You will definitely enjoy the works of Gustav Klimt and so many more amazing artists. Be prepared for lots of walking and hopefully not a rainy day. The history of the beautiful palace is priceless and a definite must see.

We enjoyed strolling around the grounds of the Schloss Belvedere much more than we enjoyed visiting the museum. The gardens were a fun place to walk around. Try going randomly into some of the side gardens and let yourself be surprised by the unexpected views, marble sculptures, and manicured plantings -- even if that's not your thing, you can't help...
