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 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.

What people are saying about Vienna

This was a fun activity, unusual in that it was both entertaining and educational . We were led from room to room that had different interactive focuses. In one room we sat in a theater and experienced the 15 th century bubonic plague as it spread via rats that scurried over St Stephens Cathedral’s exterior . Another room led us through the bombing of fields in Austria during World War I .

This tour was delightful from the moment I stepped inside the museum. Not being familiar with the artist at all, I am a new fan. The paintings and models were unusual and interesting. But most of all I enjoyed reading about his life and art philosophies. Still very applicable today.

this museum is amazing and adjoined with two art exhibitions that i didn’t know about beforehand, but loved with the likes of picasso and dalí! the freud family seemed lovely i highly recommend checking this place out (:

Very easy process to obtain tickets. Accurate description on line of the event. The concert was nice. St. Anne's Church is beautiful venue with very good acoustics. Definitely a good value for an evening out in Vienna.

The ladies there were really sweet and excited to show me everything. I got to sample lots of chocolate and toppings for free and then make my own chocolate bars, which were delicious!
