Belvedere is a complex of cultural buildings in Vienna, built as a summer getaway in the times of the Habsburgs. Split into different sections, like the Upper and Lower Belvedere, it's a good idea to prioritize each part of your visit.
Italian painter Solimena painted the ceiling fresco in the larger palace's Golden Room - just one of the areas where you can crane your neck at all the beautifully-preserved artwork on the walls and ceilings.
The smaller of the two main palaces, Lower Belvedere served more as a residence than its Upper counterpart. The style here is more concentrated on marble and gold - so no less extravagant.
Plan your visit so that dusk is falling just as you get to the gardens - the blue light falling onto the statues and fountains is just perfect.
Belvedere's Orangery is basically a fancy, early type of greenhouse for - you guessed it - growing oranges. Although its original function ceased in the 19th century, today it houses a gallery.
This was once home to Prince Eugen of Savoy's royal horses. The stables' interior now more closely resembles that of a chapel, with their medieval iconographic art.
Belvedere is widely accessible - elevators and wheelchair ramps are available on entry if you ask a member of staff. Guided tours can also feature sign language interpretations in several languages.
In the spring and summer months, Austria has quite a few public holidays - be sure to check in advance if your visit clashes to avoid disappointment!
Although there's plenty to see at Belvedere that will always be around, some exhibitions are exclusive. It's good to check the website to see what will be featured.
Vienna is one of the epicenters of European culture. Why not check out a couple of the books available at the store on-site, on subjects ranging from Gustav Klimt to the role of the bed in contemporary painting?

What People Are Saying About Belvedere, Vienna
There is so much to see in Vienna. This was a great tour to start with as it gives the locations of all of the important buildings with some history. The Palace was wonderful and the tour guide did a great job.
Wonderful city, easy access U-bahn, no jam at all, very friendly and safe city. Thanks.
Very informative experience- the guide was fluent in French and English and was interesting and knowledgable.
Amazing art of centuries in a beuatiful buildindgs with wonderful atmosphere.... and the garden and the small lake.
The tour, in several languages, covers the buildings along the Ringstrasse, and includes a guided tour of Schonbrunn palace. We did the English tour. The palace tour is also led by your tour guide and uses private headsets, which help to make the tour easier to follow. This part of the tour is worth the cost alone. Everything was very efficient and our guide, Angela, was informative and friendly. You have time to visit the palace gardens at the end. Afterwards, the coach will either drop you off at the Belvedere Palace, where you can see the Klimpt paintaings, or you can be just dropped off instead at the Opera House. You can get afternoon tours of the Opera House on the hour if you queue up on the left hand side of the building twenty minutes before.
