Belvedere Palace (Schloss Belvedere) Tours

355 Reviews
Belvedere Palace (Schloss Belvedere)
Built in the 18th century as the summer residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy, the magnificent Belvedere Palace (Schloss Belvedere) is among the many treasures of Vienna’s Baroque era and a UNESCO World Heritage–listed monument. 

The Basics
Guided tours of the Belvedere Palace include the main palace buildings—the Upper Belvedere, Lower Belvedere, and Winter Palace (the Orangery)—as well as the Royal Stables and the lavish palace gardens. Opt to visit as part of a Vienna city tour; explore independently on a hop-on hop-off bus tour or using a Vienna Card; or combine it with a horse and carriage tour or candlelight dinner in Vienna. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Plan around two hours to visit the palace and gardens.
  • Separate or combination tickets are available for the Upper Palace and Lower Palace.
  • Visitor facilities include a gift shop, café, and restaurant at both palaces.
  • All the palace buildings are fully wheelchair accessible. 

How to Get There
Belvedere Palace is located about 1.5 miles (2.5 kilometers) south of Vienna’s historic center, just off the Ringstrasse. It’s easily accessible by tram (Tram D, Schloss Belvedere or Gusshausstrasse station), U-Bahn trains (Hauptbahnhof station), or S-Bahn trains (Quartier Belvedere station).

When to Get There
The palace is open daily year-round, but it can get busy during the peak summer months, so plan an early visit to avoid the crowds. To experience the palace at its most atmospheric, time your visit for the festive season, when a lively Christmas Market is held in the palace grounds, or look out for special evening openings and exhibitions, which offer a chance to admire the illuminated palaces by night.

Art Masterpieces at the Belvedere
The Belvedere houses one of Vienna’s most impressive collections of Austrian art, with the most notable collection on display in the Upper Belvedere. Highlights include the world’s largest collection of Gustav Klimt paintings, including famous works such as The Kiss and Judith; an important display of Viennese Biedermeier art; and works by acclaimed artists including Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Oskar Laske, Paul Troger, and Max Beckmann.

Belvedere Palace and its collections: picture(s) of Austrian identities

Gustav Klimt and "The Kiss": how it became the Symbol of the Viennese Art

The Belvedere has the most expansive collection of works by Gustav Klimt. Whichever aspect of this artist’s creations you are interested in, it is here that you’ll find his landscapes and women’s portraits, as well as the works of his Golden phase. Numerous advertisements in Vienna invite visitors to see ‘the most famous kiss’. During my tour in the Belvedere, you will understand what makes The Kiss so popular and will be able to decide whose point of view is most convincing, be it fine art experts, marketeers, or spectators.Klimt was known for a long time as the portrayer of beautiful women, and we will see why science nowadays considers that Klimt felt the desires of his models better than his contemporary Sigmund Freud understood the problems of his female patients.In the course of this tour, we will consider Klimt’s works in depth, surrounded by his associates and rivals, and we’ll realize why this artist is so important for the city of Vienna.
