    Stop At: Belvedere Schlossgarten, Prinz-Eugen-Strasse 27, Vienna 1030 Austria

    The Belvedere complex is an architectural masterpiece of a bygone aristocratic splendor designed to project a sense of earthly harmony. This terrestrial utopia was founded in the first decades of the 18th c. as a summer residence for Prince Eugene of Savoy, the commander-in-chief of the Austrian army and one of the most successful military commanders in modern European history. Among the most significant buildings of the 18th c., the grandiose palace of the Upper Belvedere is a masterstroke of Baroque architecture while the surrounding formal gardens were inspired by classical antiquity.

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    Stop At: Belvedere Museum, Prinz-Eugen-Strasse 27, Vienna 1030 Austria

    Belvedere became one of the first public museums in the world with the intention to make the Habsburgs’ imperial collection accessible to the general public. Today the Belvedere Museum exhibits a world-class compilation of Austrian and international painting from the Middle Ages to the present day, including precious items of the Austrian National Gallery: masterpieces by including some of Gustav Klimt’s most acclaimed paintings: works from his golden period: “The Kiss,” “Judith,” landscapes from the Attersee series and sophisticated portraits of high society ladies.

    We had free entrance to this venue with our Vienna Pass, but it’s not worth it to see inside, as it’s mostly just an art exhibition. The outside of the building, the gardens and fountains are all that’s worth going to see, they are stunning, and free to visit.

    I waited a long time in a couple of lineups to get into the art gallery but so worth it. Several rooms of assorted artists which was amazing. Klimt's works was worth the wait, he was such an inspiration to see. Wear good shoes and plan on being there about three hours, well

    Belvedere Palace Gardens is truly enchanting. Its worth the visit and do allow at least 2 to 3 hours, more if you can to grab a coffee @ the cafe. We finished off our visit with a raspberry chocolate cake and lemon tarte. Memorable visit and highly recommended.
