Having only a few hours of free time to spend in Vienna, chose to visit The Belvedere Palace & Museum. A two in one prize. The palace property itself is a complex of museum buildings and a center garden. Several different admission ticket options, the galleries feature permanent and temporary exhibits. A few days needed to enjoy everything there is... More

I've been to Belvedere twice. It's a fantastic building. It's a must see, especially if you like Klimt. The gardens are also very nice, especially during the summer months.

If you love art and architecture this is a world class must see. The palace itself is an incredible work of art, and I visited in the dead of winter when the gardens are mostly grey. The paintings are iconic, and it would be crass of me to try to add anything to what has been said about the finest... More

A must if you are in Vienna and have any interest in art, particularly the period from 1880 to 1914. Also they have a very nice cafe with good food.

The upper belvedere is main part to be seen, lots of Klimt, Shiele and Kokoschka. It is a must for Klimt's fan. One can purchase a Prinz Eugen Ticket, which includes the upper, lower Belevedere and Winter Palace. No photos are allowed for Klimt's oeuvres, others' art works were allowed. when holding a combination ticket, cloakroom will charges 0.50 euro... More

I loved the fast handling at the entrance. Used to long queues in other museums I was happy to enter this one very quick. The surprisingly large collection from all time periods - stunning medieval art collection, and of course Impressionists, the Secession artists. The Kiss by Gustav Klimt may be the most famous artwork in the museum but definitely... More

If you went trough Europe and have seen the mayor museums with all the classic, this is a perfect alternative to just focus on two Austrian artists Schiele and Klimt. Not that many people, beautiful set up and surround. Easy to access even from City centre by tram.

Perfect combination of history and art here. Absolutely must visit in Vienna. Surrounding garden is also worth for a stay and relaxing.

Must see if you want to see The Kiss-Klimt. Of course, there is so much more. The grounds are spectacular even in the bitter cold of winter.

I didn't go inside but I used the grounds as a nice running track in the mornings. Peaceful....In the midst of the city.
