Upper Belvedere

Local nameOberes Belvedere
LocationVienna, Austria

Part of the Belvedere palace complex, this splendid Baroque palace is well worth a visit for its architectural and aesthetic value alone. It was designed by Lukas von Hildebrandt in late Baroque style. The construction was quite speedy, it only took 6 years for the palace to reach completion in 1723.

However, it is inside the palace that you will find Upper Belvedere's greatest treasure: a magnificent collection of paintings by master painters like Klimt or Van Gogh. Today, Upper Belvedere showcases the largest collection of paintings by Gustav Klimt in the world. There are 24 paintings altogether, including the world famous Kiss. That is not all, however. You can also admire works by other major painters, such as Monet, Manet or Renoir here.

Be aware that taking pictures of the paintings is forbidden and so is carrying a bag on the premises. Do not worry though, there is a cloakroom where you can leave your belongings for the duration of the visit. The entirety of the palace is accessible on a wheelchair via lifts.
