Begin your second day in Vienna by heading southeast of the centre, to Schloss Belvedere (Belvedere Palace). Here, two Baroque palaces face each other over a pretty, landscaped park. Their wedding cake-like exteriors started out as Prince Eugene of Savoy’s summer residence, and were once the home of heir-presumptive to the Austrian-Hungarian throne, Franz Ferdinand. Naturally, with such noble owners, the interiors are exquisite. Built between 1712–23, the palace complex is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At the time of writing, the Lower Belvedere was closed for renovations, but inside the Upper Belvedere, you’ll find a collection of sculptures and paintings that spans half a millennium. Perhaps most important is the extensive collection of Gustav Klimt's works, including "The Kiss", as well as art by other Viennese Modernists, and paintings by greats such as Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh and Auguste Rodin.
