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.

Okay so it's an Art Gallery. If you are an art fanatic, it's a no brainer. Don't expect there to be much else to do if you aren't interested in that sort of thing. There are classic works of art from all over the world over a number of floors. For most people it is a "must-do" when in Vienna.... More

We walked from downtown Vienna to Das Belvedere, a good brisk walk of a couple K. We were on a river cruise, so we were happy to walk. If you know how to take the bus or have a car, do that. But so worth the walk! This is a beautiful palace, like Versailles really, with grounds and fountains that... More

Belvedere Palace and Museum are in the heart of Vienna making for easy access. Whether you take a stroll around the grounds and gardens or venture inside to look at the art, it is well worth the visit. The museum itself is small by comparison to other large city museums but that is part of its charm as it does... More

A bit 4disappointing but late in the season for the gardens but looked uncared for. Didn't pay to go in the museums but the buildings are typically Viennese opulent.

This is what a museum should be. A reasonable price (12.50 euro for an adult). Stunning palatial rooms many of which had a small etching showing how it looked when Prinz Eugene lived there. A treasury of paintings separated into easily understood groups. Information about the period of art easily accessible to all (including people who, like me, have no... More

Worth the trip if you are an art buff, though when we visited in October the grounds were a bit lackluster. Probably more impressive in spring. The art is bound to be impressive year-round, however.

We had the fortune of excellent (almost summer) autumn weather. While my wife remained enjoying the sun in the lovely Belvédère park, I admired the museum collection again (we were there years ago when we enjoyed the beautiful Monet exposition)

First, the largest collection of Klimts in the world--more than the Secession Museum--including "The Kiss". Second, the gardens are stunning! Reminded us of the Boboli Gardens in Florence.
