Oberes Belvedere was the big palace of Prinz Eugen in the upper part of the park and today it is a museum called "Oesterreichische Gallerie"with some of the most precious paintings by Klimt, Schiele,Kokoschka, Hundertwasser etc.
But of course Oberes Belvedere is also worth seeing for its precious architecture of the various rooms and halls. Normally photography is not allowed inside Oberes Belvedere, but at our National Holiday - October 26th - everything was a bit different, there was an exhibition of 50 years state-treaty with free entry for everyone and nobody cared about me...
I have to admit, that some of the famous Klimt-paintings look better on the souvenir-posters than in reality but of course it was nice to see them in reality. My favorite was the "Portrait of Sonja Knips" by Gustav Klimt - you get the feeling to be able to talk to her !
