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."

Just breathtakingly beautiful. We are at awe of the grandiosity of such an elegant place but still feel so cozy. Ohhh we now to the architects! more »
I'm not much of an art person. But my daughter wanted to go; and I'm glad I went too. It's hard not to be touched by some of the work found inside, along with the stories of the paintings and artists. The custodians in each of the rooms are very knowledgeable & patient. This really is a stunning location. There was also a Christmas market on at the time we went, which was small but personal.
Thought this was the most beautiful palace in Vienna. There are two parts - Upper Belvedere and Lower Belvedere. The Palace houses the Belvedere Museum which has a great art collection. The museum contains a lot of Gustav Klimt's work and even his iconic "The Kiss". Definitely a must see when in Vienna!
