About
The two Belvedere palaces were built in the early eighteenth century by the famous Baroque architect Johann Lucas von Hildebrandt to be used as the summer residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663–1736). One of Europe’s most stunning Baroque landmarks, this ensemble – comprising the Upper and Lower Belvedere and an extensive garden – is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Today the Belvedere houses the greatest collection of Austrian art dating from the Middle Ages to the present day, complemented by the work of international artists such as Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, and Max Beckmann. Highlights from the holdings Vienna 1880–1914 are the world’s largest collection of Gustav Klimt’s paintings (including the famous golden Art Nouveau icons the Kiss (Lovers) and Judith) and works by Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka. Key works of French Impressionism and the greatest collection of Viennese Biedermeier art are further attractions on display at the Upper Belvedere.

The highlight of my trip. What a beautiful museum and garden. The Klimt permanent exhibition is amazing, highlighted by The Kiss and Judith.

Expensive for no purpose

Very expensive for no purpose. A lot of wait in cold, I would not suggest it unless you have plenty of time in Vienna and nothing else to do.

A sumptuous palace now used as a museum for some of the finest art in Vienna.
Sep 2021
The palace itself stands in a large park and gardens. Inside the palace is a collection of art, some from the medieval period, some from the Biedermeier period, and some masterpieces of Klimt and David and others. Most famously, Klimt’s most iconic painting, The Kiss, lies within these walls and is definitely worth seeing.

Museum with the chance !!
Oct 2020 • Couples
In addition to the museum, there is a garden where walking is free and you can stay there as long as you want. There is a statue at the back of this building that I have photographed.Legend has it that touching the breasts of this statue brings good luck. There you will see a row of tourists who hope to get a good chance !!!😜😜

Many of Klimpt's most famous paintings
Aug 2021
If you are a Gustav Klimpt and Art Nouveau fan like I am, this is an absolute must see. That was in the Upper Belvedere, the Lower Belvedere was closed for renovation when I was there.

We expected to get to know at least something from the history of Habsburg family. Belvedere as one of their main seats should show much more than just a gallery. From their way of living or interior we saw nothing. There are only paintings which have nothing to do with Habsburg. And the price is extremly high for only this kind of exhibition. We are truly disappointed.

Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry that we could not meet your expectations. The fact, that the Belvedere is an art gallery can be explained by the history of the castle. As early as 1781 the imperial picture gallery was opened in the Upper Belvedere under Maria Theresia and was one of the first public museums worldwide. We regret that you have not been informed correctly. We strive to provide substantial information on our website so that every visitor can get an idea in advance whether the current exhibition might interest them or not. We will consider your feedback in our quality management.

Beautiful historical complex with unique artworks, incredible garden. Belvedere means "beautiful view" and it is a real truth - beautiful inside and outside! If you are interested in art plan a visit to this place!

Don't take that booking wirh VIATOR
Aug 2021 • Couples
Don't take that pre-paid tickets wih VIATOR. Publicity in VIATOR webpage says that you don't have to wait the queue to enter the museum if you book and pre-pay the tickets. THIS IS NOT TRUE. You have to make the queu to exchange the voucher for the real tickets. Much better to buy the tickets online, then you go directly to the museum entry without waiting. A real false publicity!!

Wonderful experience
Sep 2020
I had the most incredible time in this museum during my trip to Vienna. The paintings and the buildings are in excelllent condition and very clean. The part of Gustav Klimt's paintings took me about 2 hours to admire it. It was a fantastic experience.
