Vienna: Entrance Tickets for Belvedere

1. Vienna: Entrance Tickets for Belvedere

The Belvedere in Vienna is one of the leading museums worldwide. Its famous art collection includes works ranging from the Middle Ages to the present day. The unique complex, with its two palaces, the Upper and Lower Belvedere and extensive gardens, is one of the most stunning Baroque architectural marvels in the world. Highlights include the world's largest collection of Gustav Klimt paintings as well as prominent works from the periods of Viennese Biedermeier, Austrian Baroque, Vienna around 1900, and French Impressionism. Now, for the first time in decades, the museum will once again host large-scale special exhibitions that you can admire on your visit. In the 18th century, the Austrian general Prince Eugene of Savoy commissioned the renowned Baroque architect Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt to build the complex. After the death of Prince Eugene, Empress Maria Theresa acquired the entire complex and transformed the Upper Belvedere into an exhibition venue for the imperial collections – making it one of the first public museums in the world. The Lower Belvedere, formerly the residence of Prince Eugene, is home to illustrious exhibitions. The modern pavilion of the Belvedere 21, by architect Karl Schwanzer, is a stage for contemporary art. The Baroque gardens of the Belvedere rank among the most beautiful in the world. The main garden is situated between the Lower and the Upper Belvedere and extends over three large terraces. The Belvedere park is also home to the Botanical Garden and the oldest Alpine garden in Europe.

What people are saying about Vienna

Overall very informative. Exactly what we signed. To get great facts on Vienna the city as well as inside the palace. Which we did. The guide was excellent, but his voice is drawing and makes people sleepy as we did before we reached the palace and after on the way back. He was informative nevertheless.

The combination tickets were very handy, you don’t need to visit both in the same day which is good because for the kunsthistorisches you will need at 2 hours to see everything. For the second one is relatively small so one hour maximum to see everything.

Imposing castle with a very beautiful garden. Our guide Franz Joseph took us on a journey through time in an entertaining, entertaining way. He was easy to understand and very approachable and friendly to the guests. A wonderful experience
