Belvedere is baroqued baroque. If you beat the Turks back from the city gates, you can build yourself the gaudiest residence you like! And Eugene of Savoy certainly did. Inside the upper palace is the best collection of Klimt in the city -- including both his famous pieces and several intriguing canvases far less well known. Seeing them is well... More

I was a fan of Klimpt but not of Schiele before visiting Vienna. However, after visiting the Belvedere Palace and Museum, I am a huge fan of both. This collection, as well as the Leopold Collection in the MuseumsQuartert, are must sees.

Very nice palace, (Schonbrun is more beautiful and bigger as well as the gardens). We found some interesting canvases there. Walking in the gardens was beautiful experience. Makes you want to stay there long time. But if you need to choose, pick Schonbrun, or Kunsthistorische museum. ...and the entrance was so nice , with the reflection of belvedere in the... More

Although it is a bit of a walk from Vienna center the palace and gardens are quite impressive. The palace has been converted to an art museum. The gardens are beautiful but could use a bit more care and feeding. The walk ways which once were stone have been transitioned to grave so it can be a bit dusty. Worth... More

Really must visit Upper Belvedere to see Klimpt, Van Gogh, Monet and a host of other artists under one roof. The building is splendid set in historic gardens. Really nice terraced cafe to side of building .

Belvedere Palace Upper and Lower complex is a very tranquil setting with interesting architecture and a well laid out garden featuring water fountains and wide walkways that overlook the Vienna skyline. Besides tourists, there were many seniors relaxing and taking in the sun and the more able bodied jogging in a very relaxing garden. There were many tourists queueing to... More

You see historic buildings, beautiful grounds and a permanent exhibition of paintings. It's worth walking right down to the lower level in the grounds. We arrived to inclement weather but it cleared up. You will enjoy it no matter what weather and the cafe is nice for kaffe und kuchen plus other food and drink. Lovely waiters and waitresses.

We stumbled accross this place by pure chance, and we are so glad we did! We saw a "belvedere" label on our map, and decided to go, since we were nearby. Best decision ever! Beautiful palace, with breath taking gardens behind it! I highly recommend taking a little walk to this place! You can visit the inside (you have to... More

Famous artwork, pretty gardens and Baroque architecture! It was wonderful to see The Kiss and Judith by Gustav Klimt . One of the best museums in Vienna with a scenic landscape. There is so much to see that it's best to divide the two buildings of the Belvedere into at least two days of sightseeing.
