Vienna Belvedere Palace & Museum Excursion Reviews

Prince Eugene of Savoy, successful general and art connoisseur, had the garden palace built as his summer residence. This baroque architectural jewel consists of two palaces (Upper and Lower Belvedere), which today house Austrian art from the Middle Ages to the present day, including the famed Gustav Klimt's golden paintings "The Kiss" and "Judith".
The museum and gardens were recommended by our Viking tour representative.
Sail Date: July 2018
The museum and gardens were recommended by our Viking tour representative. The artwork was beautifully arranged. Backpacks and bags must be stored there on site, but it was free and easy to do.

Our 2nd time in Vienna. We did Schonbrun palace the first time on our own. Having a guide helped put several things into perspective. After tour of Belvedere palace (which is much better than Schonbrun palace) you get a real every day feel for how the Hapsburgs lived. Then, in your free time, stay and visit the Sisi museum. It has some jaw dropping exhibits and also provides a personal view into Sisi's life as spouse of a Hapsburgs emperor at the height of the empire's power. Read Less

My mother and I were very keen to see the Klimt collection at the Belvedere and found it very easy to source tickets online as well as travel there. We took the tram from the stop outside the opera house and it only took about 10 minutes. It is a beautiful palace with an array of art work and history with a gorgeous garden to walk around too. It was also nice because it was not very crowded. Read Less

The original of Klimt's "KIss" has a magical effect on people. One lady rushed to kiss someone right there. I had an urge to do the same, just didn't have anyone nearby I could kiss :-) Reproductions have absolutely no power in comparison with the original. The rest of the museum was also very good and the gardens in front of it are simply magnificent. Read Less

Really nice to see some sights we have not seen n prior visits. Took the Cook's tour of the Market. This was really great as our Chef accompanied us and explained the various facets of the local produce and cheeses. Did the mini opera show. Lovely and short enough not to be overwhelmed. Building lacked much in way of AC or ventilation but not the fault of Viking. Would go again. Read Less

Beautiful palace, which I've been to twice before. It was nice going to some of the highlights of the museum, but frankly, I knew more about the art in the museum than our guide did.
