Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Gustav Klimt Vienna Combo: Belvedere Palace, Vienna Card and Optional Albertina Museum. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The Vienna card was the greatest benefit as we used them extensively on the excellent U-bahn and tram system throughout Vienna. The Belvedere Palace is a little way outside of the Ring surrounding the old city and silly us, we decided to walk there on a warm sunny day -- we got the tram back!
The Gustav Klimt display is very interesting, detailing his life as well as his works. They were interspersed with works of his contemporaries as well.
A bonus was a voucher for coffee at the Cafe Central, not to be missed even if you do have queue for a table at times. Sit inside not outside, so you can absorb the atmosphere and elegance of a by-gone era, and those cakes, mmmm-mmm!
Excellent gallery rating is for gallery only. Negative was that when i converted voucher for ticket at the ticket office at Belvedere, VIATOR was not recognised by the issuing office. They honoured the admission but I did not receive the rest of the package.
upper belvedere is a bit difficult to get to as a wheelchair user but the exhibition was superb
Museums showing of Klimt was great. We were not informed of transportation to site. And the admission tickets did not arrive until 10 am.
Exhibition was wonderful and package was good value for money compared with standard cost of exhibition.
BUT... The voucher did not specify where and how all documentation was to be collected.
We tried, twice using email, then by phoning the provided London number (accessible only on California time!) to be told that the documentation would definitely not be sent to our home address or the hotel.
We identified the location from the Internet and travelled there (in searing heat) from the airport with all our luggage to the head office (after being redirected) to then be informed that it had, after all, been sent directly to our hotel.
Bearing in mind that we were only in Vienna for three days, immediate access to the 72 hour Vienna pass was rather important.
The passes were indeed waiting for us at the hotel but did not include the advertised books of vouchers.
The voucher for the Belvedere was in the form of an invoice but did not specify entrance to the Klimt exhibition, resulting in confusion at the entrance desk - subsequently resolved by direct involvement of the manager.
In the end we thoroughly enjoyed our visit, but it could have been made considerably smoother by some common sense instructions and basic info on the downloaded voucher.
