Just south of Vienna’s Old Town, Schloss Belvedere is made up of two baroque palaces surrounded by landscaped gardens. The Lower Belvedere has been converted into an exhibition space, while the Upper Belvedere houses an impressive array of Austrian art – including Klimt’s much-replicated masterpiece, The Kiss.
To help you stay within walking distance of Belvedere Palace, here are four popular apartments nearby.*
In one apartment, the main living space is decorated in sky blue and bold cobalt
The Etagerie apartments are all about harmony, with a clean-lined design in calming blues or rich wine tones. There are three different sizes available, from a spacious studio to a two-bedroom flat. Each one has a kitchen with a stove, fridge and coffee maker, and you’ll find several supermarkets nearby if you want to pick up groceries.
