The palace wasn't very crowded and had some beautiful art pieces, including The Kiss by Klimt. Sadly the palace itself has been heavily modified to suit it's new gallery context but the exterior has retained it's baroque beauty.

My mom and I are big Klimt fans... The first time we visited Vienna, we didn't enter this museum (gasp!), so she always wanted to come back and visit this place. We've been to other Klimt exhibitions, but there's nothing like coming to the Belvedere and see his work there. The museum was pretty empty when we got there (around... More

Even though this palace is a little bit removed from many of the other places of interest, it is indeed worth a visit. The palace itself is imposing while the gardens are immaculate.

We had time to visit the Upper Belvedere that now houses the arts collection. We visited on the anniversary of the peace treaty for IIWW. The gardens were lovely for taking pictures. The is a traditional restaurant on the right just as you leave from the Lower Belvedere which we enjoyed.

I haven't been in the palace, but the garden in front of palace is so peaceful, that I almost forgot I was in the city center.

Forget Schoenbrunn, Belevedere has so much more to offer. It is easy access from city, no queues, no crowds and so beautiful. The gardens , with fountains and cascades are free and so lovely. The upper palace was our choice to visit with art from 1800 onwards, including "the kiss" by Gustav Klimt, Vienna's favourite. Not only is there art... More

Bring your walking shoes! It was a rainy day, so we did only the upper and lower Belvedere. Give yourself some time to see the galleries and walk from one palace to the other. Beautiful collection of medieval to modern. Check the internet and see what current exhibits interest you - that way you can schedule your time. The cafe... More

We were truly looking froward to our visit of the Belvedere, but were slightly dispappointed. Only 2 rooms in the entire Oberes Belvedere made it worth visiting. The rooms with the Klimt and Schiel paintings were amazing but the rest ..... a little worn, not up to date and sometimes even boring. No vist the Leopold museum instead and concentrate... More
