About
Since 2011, the Belvedere 21 has hosted countless international temporary exhibitions. The architecture of the museum’s brightly-lit, open and airy spaces guide visitors through both a comprehensive overview of 70 years of artistic production in Austria and the exposition of important international viewpoints. A venue for performative interventions, film screenings, themed lectures, concerts and artists talks, the Belvedere 21 offers a platform for the local art scene to commune with an engaged audience. An exploration of contemporary art and topics of the highest social relevance are central to its multifaceted program of exhibitions and diverse outreach programs.

I recently visited the museum and had an unpleasant experience with a security guard. We opened a door to access the garden exhibits, and there were no signs indicating that the door should not be used. Despite this, the security guard yelled at us. This aggressive behavior was unwarranted and disrupted our visit.

I'm not a fan of modern art, so I only went here because of the vienna pass.

There is a fair amount of work on the teo floors, but to me, it was a quick visit.

I'm sure someone who is more into this art style would find this of more benefit and interest.

Thank you for your feedback! The Belvedere 21, our museum for contemporary art, will especially fascinate lovers of modern art. To all those who prefer something more “classic”, we recommend the Upper Belvedere, which is nearby.

Come and see for yourself if I over- or under- rated this place. My recommendation is simple: if you love modern art or stay at Andaz hotel across the street than you must visit. However, if you’re in central Vienna and come to Vienna for its “classical” values - you don’t have to visit 😎
Saying that, we thought that Dad Reich exhibit was interesting and thought provoking

Very little to entertain you here, indeed if it wasn't for the Vienna pass, i.woukdnt have gone. I'd highly recommend those interested in modern art go to the much much superior Momuk.
I like a bit of modern art, at the very least it either engages you, or moves you to laughter at what nonsense is being called 'art'.
The very small amount on display was indeed nonsense. A series of photos with coloured clay smudges over their faces. A number 4 on a chair, A massive metal box with a few blue canvasses on the outside. Pretentiousness in full display.

The Belvedere museum itself was very interesting. We bought a combination ticket including Belvedere 21. There was a long walk between the two exhibits. However, once we got to Belvedere 21 we found it to be a joke. There was one roon with two large objects and then another room with a few nonspecial paintings. A total loss of time money and walking

Belvedere 21 is the place where you can see pieces of art from Vienna’s up and coming artists. Modern, spacious and boring at first sight, Belvedere 21 is more than meets the eye in the first place. It has exhibitions that can leave you unimpressed if you aren’t that much into that kind of art (the kind that makes you wanna have a chat with the artist and see what does it mean to them and why did they express their creativity that way), but it has also more conventional pieces (conventional as in pieces that tell a story that resonates better with you and your understanding of art rather than the classical portraits or bowl of fruits). For me it was nice to see pieces of art created with different materials: from metal to fabric and the classic paint. All in all, we had a good time in there.

This relatively new venue for contemporary / modern art is just a few minutes' walk from its name sake Belvedere or just another tram stop or two from it. A must see if you're on an art trail in Vienna. Best thing is to check the website for current schedule. Admission ticket must be purchased. This is the main locale of "what's new" in Vienna art presentations.

Nice. Bottom flow is way to modern to me and little unrealistic with carbon boxes and ultra modern art ( used underpants and also used scissors) not me ... however upstairs great exhibit. Atterris amazing.

Located in a modern post-war glass and steel building close to the Military Museum, the Belvedere 21 is dedicated to contemporary art. The collection is rather small limited although there are some unique pieces. The museum also holds temporary exhibitions. So if something you are interested in is on display, it is worth a visit.

You can also buy a combo-ticket for this museum along with the Upper and Lower Belvedere museums which makes it more economical if you want to visit all three.

As in most art galleries if you like the art you enjoy it. I loved the stuff by Attersee, the layout was fresh and bright and even though its small I enjoyed the visit. Being relatively close to my hotel was a bonus and they have free tea n coffee!!
