One must have strong legs to endure the "uphill" walking to get there. The grounds are nice...the statues are opulent. The Museum had a particular collection of a Viennese Scientist who studied human skulls. Being a Forensic Anthropologist , my wife was particularly interested and her expectations were properly met.

This former summer home of an Austrian nobleman has been converted into a museum featuring the very best of Austrian art. The highlight of the collection features the works of Gustav Klimpt, and his best known painting, "The Kiss," which is an Austrian Icon. Beyond the museum's collection, the palace complex itself is worth some appreciation as it conveys a clear image of how the top levels of the old Austro-Humgarian nobility lived.

We struggled to find the entrance to the Belvedere Palace and Museum, but once we did, we were very impressed. There are actually two palaces, an upper and a lower. We bought our museum tickets at the lower palace and were told that the upper palace was 600 meters away. The walk through the gardens between the palaces was so worthwhile, and we enjoyed the collection of art works in the museum.

Architecture of the two palaces is very impressive, gave the inside a miss (had seen the Klimts at the Kunsthistorisches and Karlsplatz Museum so didn't go into the palace but the free formal gardens are lovely, altho’ we were glad to find the Botanischer Garten - also free (the Alpine garden area has a fee but is well worth it) at the end of the grounds of the Belvedere which were far better for plant lovers they run along the outside wall of the Belvedere, stroll through them and they lead back to the main road)

The Belvedere is divided into upper and lower art museums, with the Upper Belvedere housing the permanent exhibits and the Lower Belvedere housing newer exhibits. Klimt's The Kiss (Lovers) is on display in the Upper Belvedere, though the overall body of Klimt works is small. The grounds of the palace are beautiful.
