"Mr. belvedere" Belvedere Palace & Gardens Tip by heitzenrater
Belvedere Palace & Gardens, Vienna: 183 reviews and 360 photos
Belvedere, is actually two Baroque (highly ornate and extravagant in style) palaces at either end of a terraced garden. The Lower Belvedere (1714–16) was a summer garden palace, and the Upper (1721–24) was designed as a place of entertainment.
Currently the Upper Belvedere houses the impressive collection of Austrian art dating from the Middle Ages to the present day. At the heart of the displays of “art around 1900” is the world’s largest Gustav Klimt collection. The glittering highlights are Klimt’s golden pictures "The Kiss" and "Judith", and masterpieces by Schiele and Kokoschka. Prominent works by the French Impressionists and the outstanding collection of Viennese Biedermeier paintings are further attractions at the Upper Belvedere.
Upper Belvedere - daily 10 am to 6 pm
