A beautiful collection of buildings in immaculate gardens. Art collection is very varied and laid out in a user-friendly format. The Schiele and Klimt exhibits alone justify the entry fees! Also an excellent shop where people can buy copies of some of the best paintings.

Liked these gardens not too large and some informal beds which were lovely. Fountain thought was better than at Schonbrunn Palace. The art galleries are well worth a visit. Nothing to dislike.

We never even made it into the actual palace as the gardens were so beautiful! The fountains are magnificent as well. You don't even need to get a ticket to view the gardens and it is well worth seeing. Note: be sure to wear sneakers and not sandals! There are a lot of small rocks to walk on and I... More

Apart from Gustav Klimt (reason enough to go just for his works - amongst the most expensive ever sold at auction) the rest of the collection, the place and gardens make this a must in Vienna. Wonderful art treasures in a magnificent setting. World class. It's walkable from the city centre so go.

Enter the site from the rear entrance at Rennweg 6 to avoid the tourist crowd. The garden and the palace exterior are free to roam around. The garden with its fountain was very reminiscent of the Palace of Versailles. If you really must go into the museum, it costs €12.5 per adult. WCs are available on site at the cost... More

The Belvedere museum is a must for all art enthusiasts and the place itself should be high on your to-do-list. If you aren't interested in the vast collection of art pieces from the Middle Ages to the 20th century then I recommend strolingl in the beautiful gardens behind the palace especially if the weather is nice.

Like many places in Vienna the staff are quite rude expecially if you talk in English. It was 8pm when we were going to leave this place, but all the doors were closed and no one said anything. Only after 45 minutes to go everywhere to find for staff members or open doors we where able to find one door... More

The garden of the Palace is extraordinary amazing. The Palace is situated outskirt of the city centre. The day I visited was a brightly lovely autumn so that the yellow leaves were fallen all over the ground. The masterpieces display in the museum are absolutely of the best collection in Europe.

We didn't want to see the art, so we didn't go into the upper palace. Not that we are anti-art, we were tired, it was later, and we prefer other art. Our hotel was just doors away from the lower entrance, so we spent part of a late afternoon walking about. It was very peaceful, not crowded at all, and... More
