I haven't been inside museum but I walk around the palace. Building is just like fair tale. There is a big pool in front of it. At the back side there is a long garden. I was a pleasure to see palaces of vienna.

If you like art museums then you will like this. I thought it was a tour of the palace like they tour palaces. It isn't.

Without any doubt the museum is a must. Coming to Vienna and not seeing the The Kiss is almost a sin. Based on this idea is the price of the entrance to upper Belvedere, which is a beautiful and enjoyable art museum. I suggest entering from the lower part, walking the garden, enjoying the quiet and calm atmosphere and then... More

For people who enjoy museums, galleries and gardens, Belvedere is, without a doubt, a required destination in Vienna. It is true that the upper and lower buildings require separate entrance fees. I personally think it's worth paying for both. But if you are forced to choose only one, then I would go with the upper. Klimt's works alone is worth... More

We hit this as our last museum in Vienna. We were not expecting much and were mainly going to see the grounds but were pleasantly surprised with the impressive artwork in this museum! We were so glad we made it inside of this museum!

Palaces are among my favourite spots in Vienna. The Belvedere is not unlike the others - worthwhile visiting inside but also worthwhile strolling around the gardens. I like to take a book with me and just spend a couple of hours reading...

Good museum with interesting works by Egon Schule and Klimpt. Overall a real pleasure but marred by the poor lighting of the Klimpt, all of which was behind glass and reflected distractingly really they should do better

The extensive formal gardens in front and back of the Palace were fabulous. The art is so well displayed. An outstanding collection. Allow at least 3 hours to enjoy this top notch mueum.
