The former residence of Austrian Prince Eugene of Savoy, Belvedere Palace represents a historic complex housing important Austrian art. The two Baroque palaces, Upper and Lower Belvedere, are set in a park among decorative fountains and Baroque sculptures. Each palace is home to collections of expressionism, impressionism, contemporary art, medieval art, and Baroque art. The Upper Palace is best known for the Klimt Room, where you'll find an impressive exhibit of the works of Gustav Klimt, including "The Kiss." In addition to the two palaces, visit the orangery and the palace stables for an additional glimpse into Austrian art.

THE MUST GO in Vienna. Amazing palace. The greatest museum of the city. Very impressive architecture and stunning gardens. In the museum you will be able to see many of Klimt s masterpieces with most important the famous "the Kiss" and "Athena". Have a nice walk at the gardens and the pond. At Christmas period enjoy the Christmas village at the front of the museum. Absolutely fabulous place.
I love that it shows other less popular paintings of Gustav Klimt - like the ones before he found his signature 'gold paintings'. It's profound to see and appreciate 'The Kiss' up close. The Lower Belvedere was closed when I visited.
