5 Highlights of Belvedere Palace, Vienna

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.

Upper Belvedere

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.

Lower Belvedere

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.

Gardens

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.

Orangery

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.

Palace Stables

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.

Good introduction to the buildings of Vienna

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.
