The Belvedere is one of the most important and beautiful Boroque Building in Áustria. Located in the third district, it is very close to the city center and just beside one of the best beer and local food of Vienna, the Salm Brau restaurant. Its garden is amazing place to enjoy the view of the city and inside the upper... More

This museum complex is about a mile and a half from central Vienna - walkable, but tram stop just outside. However, don't let this put you off. The place comprises several beautiful baroque palaces - we were short of time so visited only the Upper Belvedere (you can buy different ticket combinations) for its art collection - a lot of...

Compared to Schonbrunn, the Belvedere was disappointing, except for the art, which was fabulous. The Klimt works are well worth seeing, as well as the rest of the art collection. We thought the buildings and grounds were somewhat poorly maintained compared to other palaces, and the fees for entry are not good value for money. However, having said that, a... More

The buildings itself and collections are amazing - from the golden boy on the entrance foyer to The Kiss to Monet - too much to cover. The Lower Belvedere (in June 2014) was all modern art and to us, looked like a trendy furniture store in Toronto...I'd skip the Lower museum next time, but Upper Belvedere has some power wow-factor.

This is not to be missed. The gardens are beautiful approaching the Schloss. Beware of the large tour groups the settle in front of The Kiss and Judith. But, don't overlook the other Klimt paintings not only in that room but the others. The other floors of upper Belvedere are also worth a look.

The Belvedere has an amazing collection of works by Gustav Klimt including of course "The Kiss" and many more. There is also a pretty good collection of other impressionists. I also enjoyed the weird sculptures by Messerschmidt(not connected to the airplanes, i don't think.) Didn't know about them before we went to the museum. The building itself is impressive and...

I visited the museums on a past visit. This time I just enjoyed the gardens. Lovely place to walk, people watch and enjoy the fountains and plants. Last time I visited the upper garden was filled with the Christams market and the fountains were dry. This time the fountains were playing. A peaceful place for a stroll, a fast walk... More

The Klimt rooms are world class and worth a visit on their own. The museum audio tour is quite good and worth the money. The Kokoschka collection is also amazing. If you like Biedermeier the collection is impressive. The gardens were a little ragged looking when we visited in August 2014, but the vista from the back of the palace... More

We decided not to go inside the Belvedere as it was very expensive (around €20) and we weren't really that interested in what they had to offer, I'd heard the gardens were nice to walk around, and were free, but were a bit disappointed. The gardens were quite unkept and there were much nicer parks to look round such as... More

An essential visit for all art lovers in Vienna. The Climt sections are, of course, unique, but many other superb exhibits are on show. Unusual features include some excellent Russian works in. The lower gallery. I just wish they would notify you in advance that part f the lower gallery closes at 12 noon.
