Belvedere Palace & Gardens, Vienna: 182 reviews and 355 photos
The second great palace and park complex is the Belvedere. Located between the Schwarzenberg Platz and the South Station, the park is easily accessible from central Vienna. The park contains three palaces. The Schwarzenberg Palace, on the square of the same name, is today a small luxury hotel. The Lower Belevedere Palace, entrance from Rennweg Street, houses a great collection of Medieval and Baroque art. The Upper Belvedere Palace, entrance from Prince Eugen Street, houses a collection of Impressionist painters and Austrian painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including Klimt, Kokoschka and Schiele. Both museums are open from 9:00 to 17:00, daily except Mondays and major holidays. A single ticket gives access to both museums.
I recommend starting at the Upper Belvedere (take Tram D, which runs along the Ring passing the University, to Schloss Belvedere stop). After viewing the exhibits, walk downhill through the park (about 500m or 1/3 mile) to the Lower Belvedere. From there you can take the tram 71 back to the Ring at Schwarzenberg Platz.
