Klimt and more Klimt in a beautiful old building. The refusal of the Austrian government to return these paintings to the original owners, recently announced, leaves one with a bad taste when visiting.

Much bigger than I thought but well worth going to see. The rooms are awesome and the art work is excellent. if you like Kimptt then this is the place to com. You have the upper and lower aspect to it and the grounds are quite big.

We walked here from the centre on a snowy December day and had a great visit - amazing buildings and grounds, fantastic exhibitions, chilled out atmosphere and good cafe. One of the best gallery/museum experiences we have had in Europe.

It looks really nice on the outside. On to be honest, I think I would still recommend going. However, if you only have limited days and have to be ruthless about what you see. I think you could cut this out. There wasn't much information on offer, plus I thought inside was a bit empty, you could see it all... More

The upper museums have the Klimt, David's Napoleon and some Schiele. But the lower museum through the gardens has a gallery of movement. Brilliant paintings showing speed, direction, movement. So much art, so much to see. The museum cafe did a nice lunch at a decent price.

Absolutely loved this beautiful museum with its spectacular Klimt & Schiele paintings. The grounds are magnificent and the architecture of the palaces & iits interiors is evocative of the Baroque style of the era.

We visited The Belvedere on our honeymoon cruise down the Danube (fabulous!). The gardens are beautiful, very formal and traditional with great views over the city. There is a good collection of art work, many of which are well known, but we were totally mesmerised by Klimt's The Kiss - it is quite different 'in the flesh', almost 3D. Beautiful.

We visited the Upper Belvedere where The Kiss by Klimt is housed. It was great to see the original and pause in wonderment at his use of both silver and gold pigments. The building itself is spectacular both inside and out and built in the Baroque style. From the top floor the views across Venice were spectacular. The gardens were... More

We walked through the big parc from the "lower" to the "upper" Belvedere and just visited it from the outside. Really worth to see! We didn't go inside because we've already seen the Schloss Schönbrunn from the inside :)

The Belvedere Palace is about 20 minutes walking distance from the Opera. It used to be a Summer residence of Prince Eugene. Visitors have to walk up a large park to reach the palace. There is a beautiful view. I have seen it both in the Summer and in the Winter. There is a large collection of baroque art. There... More
