Vienna's famous Belvedere is both an important historical site and the most visited art museum in Austria. It houses the world's largest collection of Klimt's works - including his world-famous "The Kiss"! In this quest, you'll get up close and personal with the palace's permanent exhibition and its two dominant themes: love and war.
Keep in mind that the Belvedere is made up of two palaces: an upper and a lower. This quest takes place in the Upper Belvedere (Oberes Belvedere) - so be sure to find the right one.
The museum is open daily from 9:00 to 18:00, and until 21:00 on Fridays. Tickets can be purchased on the museum website: https://www.belvedere.at/tickets.
Our adventure begins at the palace gates.
Situated in the very heart of Vienna, the Hofburg is one of the most famed royal residences in the world. That said, it is highly unusual for Europe: it is a combination of different eras that can confuse and captivate in its history and hallways alike. Together, we will explore its main attractions and their place in Austrian history.
In this mini-quest, you will guess the anti-fascist resistance's password; learn how one can become the head of Europe's first printing press, but lose everything because of one single book; and even visit the Bermuda Triangle. If you're lucky, you'll make it through safe and sound! Are you up to the challenge?
