We loved the old buildings of the both the Upper and Lower Belvedere palaces. The Klimts are wonderful and not to be missed. Nor is the wonderful Gold cabinet in the Lower Palace. However we were enormously disappointed with the Orangery which has been changed completely out of recognition with a totally modernised interior. It's now awful.

Superb workls of art hee ( Klimt and Scheile come to mind) We found the food in the restaurant rather unexciting.

There are two reasons to visit the Belvedere - the palace itself, and the collection of art inside it. We visited only the Upper Belvedere, and after about 2 and a half hours we still had not seen all of it. The audioguide is essential as it describes not only the key artworks, but also the history and features of the Palace itself, even down to the main buildings that you can see from the windows. The outside features of the Palace are magnificent, as are the few rooms inside which remain as they were in the Baroque period, the ceiling frescoes particularly fine. The Klimpt is of course the main attraction but there is interesting art from all periods, and even stuffed animals and grotesque sculpted heads! The only downside is the TINY cafe nowhere near big enough for such a major attraction. Go early if you want to see it all.

Go for David's Napoleon Crossing the Alps, a score of big Klimts and Schieles plus a few eye-opening mega-19th C Austrian wonders. The permanent exhibit of Prince Eugene's zoo and aviary inspired taxidermy and art is a delight as is the room displaying the marvelous and unique 1770 collection of Character Heads by the eccentric Franz Xaver Messerschmidt. A 15-20 minute walk from the Old City.

A must when in Vienna. Quiet in February but I missed the green garden. Inside it is classy. Some of my favorite pictures on the walls. Some of the staff where to busy keeping people away from the pictures. I could not see the details on some of the smaller Klimt´s. When you have to glasses between you and the picture and the A4 picture is 50cm inside the wall it is impossible to watch from a distance. So I leaned forward without setting of any alarms. One not very friendly member of the staff ask me to remove from the picture. A nice question would have been better. I stayed in the room for some time and there were a lot of people setting of alarms. So please make a better arrangement for the visitors!
