Overview

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.

We went to the upper museum to see the Klimt exhibit and spent about an hour. It is wonderful. It is a highlight of vienna.

The place really isn't that special. I just can't understand why museums in Austria won't allow you to take pictures. Seeing "The Kiss" was great, but honestly I don't remember much of the other art on display and have nothing to look back on to...More

Worth a visit to see the one painting. Do not pay extra to visit Belvedere 21 which is Contemporary Art and not worth the walk to reach either. The Upper Belvedere is the only part we thought really worth visiting

The royal apartments are impressive though predictable after seeing several royal residences. The art collection leans heavily on Gustav Klimt - a hometown hero - particularly his romantic figurative paintings layered in gold leaf. Crowds form around his monumental painting 'The Kiss' so it can...More

The Belvedere is spacious and there's lots to look at, nowhere was really crowded. Don't know if that changes according to season and day. We went in April on a Thursday.
