Schloss Belvedere

See Website

Built as a summer residence for Prince Eugene, this complex comprises two museums, the Lower and the Upper Belvedere, which are connected by a beautifully laid-out garden. The Upper Belvedere is famous for having Klimt’s The Kiss, but it also boasts many more treasures, including an incredible collection of Schiele paintings (don’t miss the haunting Death and the Maiden). There are Austrian works that date to medieval times and a substantial collection of 19th-century art, including Jacques-Louis David’s oversized portrait of Napoléon.

The Lower Belvedere is used mainly for temporary exhibits. Make sure to take the symmetrical gravel paths leading from one museum to the other and enjoy the fabulous vistas of Vienna. TIP: The Belvedere’s cafés are not worth a stop; before or after your visit, walk a few blocks to Daniel Bakery for a meal or snack.
