If all you are wanting to see is the Klimt exhibition then you should only buy the Upper Belvedere ticket. Superb exhibition and really a must see while in Vienna

This is a good walk from the centre. It is a very impressive building. We went to see the Gustav Klimt paintings which are housed in the top Bevedere. We paid also to go in the lowere Bevedere which was not so interesting. Good,if somewhat small cafe.

We enjoyed this very much. It has a wonderful art collection, including Klimt (with, of course, The Kiss). The apartments are lovely. We found out about Sisi at Neuschwanstein, so we were interested in learning more, as you will be. Her dinnerware fills rooms and is beautiful.

The palace grounds were gorgeous and the two of us ended up walking them a couple of different nights. I recommend visiting in the afternoon and in the evening if you get the opportunity. The art within the palace is awe inspiring. For some reason they enforce a no cameras rule throughout the entire palace which means there are security... More

This is another lovely palace which has thousands of famous paintings including the 'Kiss'. The upper Belvedere garden with pond was beautiful. However, the lower Belvedere garden at this time of the year looked a bit withered. There is a nice cafe on site.

Not only are the grounds of this museum beautiful, but there is nothing quite like seeing "The Kiss" in all it's golden glory! It is worth a visit solely for that painting but there is so much more to offer. Great collection of art all around.

This is a beautiful setting for a nice art collection, the ultimate highlight of which is Klimpt. You buy your ticket in the building to the right of the gate, not in the palace itself, and you can see the gardens for free. There is a lovely view of Vienna from here, as well. The cafe was also good, excellent... More

Palace buildings were both amazing. Very ornate and great attention to detail, We got the Upper audio guide (7E/2) which provided a wealth of information on the Prince, the buildings, the grounds, as well as many of the paintings. Probably as much, if not more, info on paintings and the artists than any other audio guide I've gotten elsewhere. There... More

We loved this palace. We went there specifically to see the Klimpt paintings and they were so special. We also enjoyed the other paintings and sculptures as well. And a bonus was the beautiful grounds of the Upper and Lower belvedere palace. They were so beautiful. There is also an incredible view of Vienna from the upper floors of the... More
