Belvedere Palace Vienna Reviews
Belvedere Palace Grounds Apr 17, 2015
This review is based solely on the visit to the Palace grounds, souvenir shop and everything outdoors. I did not actually do the indoor palace tour. Yes the beauty of visiting tourist destination in Vienna is that you can enter palace grounds for free. You only need to pay if you do a tour of the palace rooms which is something that not everyone is interested in.
As this was the beginning of Spring, most all of the plants/ greenery have started to grown therefore a walk around the palace ground appear a bit bare or bald. But it was still worth a walk through the Palace grounds, afterall its free.
The thing that will strike you most are the many half body sculptures of a woman with big boobs. For some reason, i find the sculpture a bit Medusa like.
The Palace also hosts exhibitions and at the time of our visit, there was nothing really spectacular worth viewing. The souvenir shop mainly focusess on selling Klimt’s art souvenirs.
There is also a band of 3 Horse-head men (they wear Horse masks) playing music on the palace grounds throughout the day. They are also featured in the Vienna tourist magazine! We had seen them previously (don’t know if its exactly the same group of men) near the Riesenrad.
