What You'll Do
  • Explore the Upper Belvedere, a masterstroke of Baroque architecture
  • Visit Prince Eugene of Savoy's private apartments
  • Explore the Museum's priceless art collection, including masterpieces by Monet, Van Gogh, and Klimt
Vienna’s Belvedere complex is an architectural masterpiece of historical aristocratic splendor. Enjoy a 2-hour tour of the grounds and palaces, as your art historian guide shows you the highlights and then shows you some of the museum’s top works of art.
What to Expect
Belvedere dates from the early 18th century, when it was built as a summer residence for Prince Eugene of Savoy, the commander-in-chief of the Austrian army and among the top military commanders of modern European history.

Spend 3 hours with a guide exploring one of the most significant buildings of the 18th century. The grandiose palace of the Upper Belvedere is a masterstroke of Baroque architecture, surrounded by formal gardens inspired by classical antiquity.

The prince’s private apartments eloquently illustrate the taste of the owner and the artistic achievements of his time. In the Upper Belvedere, your guide will point out the Baroque elements of the Festive room, while in the Lower Belvedere, you’ll be able to admire the artistic features of the Marble Hall, the Marble Gallery, and the Gold Cabinet.

Inspired by the idea of enlightened absolutism the Belvedere became one of the first public museums in the world to make the Habsburg imperial collection accessible to the general public.

Today the Belvedere Museum is home to a world-class collection of Austrian and international paintings from the Middle Ages to the present day, including important items from the Austrian National Gallery. The collection includes masterpieces by Jacques Louis David, Caspar David Friedrich, Auguste Rodin, Claude Monet, Giuseppe Segantini, and Vincent van Gogh.

After the 2-hour tour of the grounds and palaces, your guide will spend an hour pointing out the Art Museum’s highlights. These include David’s Napoleon on the Great St. Bernard Pass, Klimt's Judith, and Caspar David Friedrich’s Seashore in the Fog, among others.

Meeting Point

Go to the Palace's ticket office entrance. This is not the same as the entrance to the Palace, but the entrance you see on the right-hand side as soon as you come into the garden from Prinz Eugen Street.

Know Before You Go
Your guide can help you purchase tickets at the beginning of your walk or the supplier can send you a separate e-mail invoice for your group's tickets so that the guide can prepay, sparing you from waiting in the long entrance lines.
