What to expect

There is no better place for a crash-course in Austrian culture and identity than the famous Belvedere Palace. The Belvedere is an important historical site, a masterpiece of Baroque architecture and the home of the National Art Gallery, including the iconic painting The Kiss by Gustav Klimt.

On this Belvedere Museum tour, you will explore celebrated masterpieces from the collections to learn how they explain the specific images of Vienna — as the capital of music, the home of psychoanalysis, the crossroads of cultures, the most comfortable city of the world, etc.

Look forward to see medieval religious paintings and wooden sculptures, which will give you insight into the historical roots of Austrian spiritual traditions. Gustav Klimt's early female portraits and his famous Kiss will disclose the unique atmosphere of the Fin de Siècle Vienna as well as the marketing value of the cultural heritage for today’s Viennese. Franz Xaver Messerschmidt's Character Heads which so realistically embodies extreme facial expressions will give you a clue to the interest in human soul movement that later manifested itself in Sigmund Freud's famous theories of the unconscious.
