During the visit, the alarm went off, I was in the orangery at the time, the employees shouted hysterically at us to leave the area in German language (it's ok for me, I speak German, but what about the visitors who don't understand!?). Of course, nowadays, when there can be various unpredictable threats, I respect everything and I also read Belvedere's safety rules (house rules). What is unacceptable is not taking care of the dismissed visitors (no explanation, apology) and letting new visitors into the building in 15 minutes after. All evacuated visitors could stay waiting in cold AGAIN the line. I'm very disappointed with the approach :(

The Lower Belvedere was a bit disappointing. While the gardens were fantastic and the overall setting is stunning, the museum itself was quite underwhelming. First off the entrance was not attended well, and tickets were checked at both the Orangery and the Stables. Most museums have a cleat single point of entry with maps of the plan of the museum along with explained highlights. Both the exhibit at the Orangery and the Stables were not worth the visit considering there were similar exhibits in the Upper Belvedere. Additionally, half the museum was closed (we did not see the Marble Hall). I would say skip this and spend more time in the Upper Belvedere and Gardens.

No trip to Vienna would be complete without a visit to The Belvedere Palace Complex ,Lower Belvedere Palace is so interesting and beautiful.
Not as popular tourist attraction as Upper Belvedere Palace but it's still incredibly beautiful and fascinating in my opinion,,a U shaped palace building completed in 1716 under the guidance of architect and military engineer Johann Lukas Hildebrandt ,it's a wonderful palace to view ,the building itself ,the well maintained gardens,the fountains and statues ,it's just a wonderful palace building to check out if you're planning a holiday to this most beautiful of city's ,we walked from Lower Belvedere Palace to Upper Belvedere Palace to the Christmas Market ,loved it ,cold ,snow falling ,had a wonderful time ,can't wait to visit here again.

Lovely garden, but at least 1/2 and the two exhibitions were a bit boring and not worth the extra I paid for the combined ticket, at least an extra 10 euro. They should advise visitors and reduce price to reflect this.

Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with your experience at the Lower Belvedere. While the individual ticket prices have indeed been reduced for the Lower Belvedere due to the current exhibition program being somewhat diminished during show change, the combination ticket prices are not altered during such times because they already provide quite significant savings. For example, instead of €34, a 2-in-1 ticket costs only €26 on site and €22,90 when bought online. We also strive to provide the most up-to-date information on our website, so that visitors may make well-informed choices when planning their visit. Under exhibitions, you can see what is on view at any given time, as well as upcoming shows with dates and more details. Our exhibition program is planned with the most efficient, ergo shortest show change phase possible as a top priority. This way, our doors can always remain open to the public, although with the unfortunate small trade-off that certain gallery spaces will be closed for brief periods of time.

We visited the Lower Belvedere to see the ‘Viva Venezia’ exhibition. The exhibition was well thought through and the combination of different ways of portraying the ideas - art, poetry, film, history etc made it compelling.

We also enjoyed the Rebell exhibition.

Went here for the Dali-Freud exhibit and found it to be underwhelming, there wasn’t much to see. There was also an exhibit on Venice that was much more extensive. The ticket gives you access to the lower gardens, but if you want to see the gardens in the upper place you have to buy a separate ticket.

Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry to hear, that you were not impressed with the Dalí-Freud exhibition. The exhibition focuses on qualtity rather than quantity and traces the development of the young Dalí under the influence of Freud up to his unique position in art history. However, we are happy that you did like the Venice exhibition.

Having been to the Lower Belvedere previously and having enjoyed it really quite a bit, I was looking forward to the reopening of the museum after a closure for renovation. What I didn't realise though is that only the Orangerie and two of the state rooms would be opened (though at the full price of about 14 EUR, if paid on premise they even charged more).
Unfortunately almost the full palace with the sculpture exhibition was not opened yet, nor the medieval art in the Prunkstall. Thus you had to pay full price for a couple of Dali paintings. I like Dali a lot, but what was shown was unfortunately nowhere close to the interesting pieces I had seen in Figueras (maybe a tad unfair to compare it to that outstanding place), but also not as interesting as the Dali portions in the Modern Tate (OK they did get the lobster phone, but still), or the Chicago Arts Institute, Reina Sofia, etc.
Once the other sections will be reopened, the Lower Belvedere is in fact worth the entrance fee, but at least it is just overpriced for what was shown at least this weekend unfortunately.

The Upper Belvedere is great, well worth a visit.

However the Lower Belvedere is not worth it unless there is something specific that you want to see. It costs 14 euros to visit, and probably 1.5 hours to see everything. Some of the pieces/exhibitions are interesting but it's not going to blow you away. For the same price you can get entry into the Leopold museum which has a much better selection of modernist artwork and is considerably more worth your while.

If it was half the cost it might be worth a visit, however for what they're asking it pales in comparison to the Leopold. Don't bother. Unless you want to see a specific piece, give it a miss!

This is the first palace built by Prince Eugen of Savoy, the great Austrian general who pushed the Turks out of Hungary. It is perhaps lesser known and visited due to the lower caliber of art. However, what it lacks in art, it compensates in architecture. Some of the best rooms the central atrium with a painted ceiling, the Marble Gallery, the Mirror Cabinet with a statue of Prince Eugen are located in the Lower Belvedere.

I highly recommend you enter on one end of the Belvedere and leave the other. There is a metro stop near the Upper Belvedere entrance and the Lower is close to the Karlskirche. You can also walk the wonderful gardens in between. While the Upper has the art, don't miss the lower and its great palace rooms.

The Belvedere palaces is something that you must see if you go to Vienna. Simple like that. Unfotunately is always overcrowded but if you like art you must go
