Belvedere Palace 2.5-Hour Private History Tour in Vienna: World-Class Art in an Aristocratic Utopia
Annalisle was a delight: she's knowledgeable, friendly, energetic -- and you may learn she has a pretty singing voice and is the 6th of 7 children. My wife and I took a private tour with her of Belvedere, and we highly recommend her.

Belvedere Palace 2.5-Hour Small-Group History Tour in Vienna
We were extremely fortunately to have Ira as our guide. She met us on time, helped us purchase the right tickets, provided a wonderful history of the place, walked us through the gardens, provided information on key pictures and recommended a great place for lunch. Belvedere Palace is beautiful and Ira helped us see that beauty. You will be fortunate, just like us, if you get her as your guide.

When to Get There

The palace is open daily year-round, but it can get busy during the peak summer months, so plan an early visit to avoid the crowds. To experience the palace at its most atmospheric, time your visit for the festive season, when a lively Christmas Market is held in the palace grounds, or look out for special evening openings and exhibitions, which offer a chance to admire the illuminated palaces by night.
