The Belvedere Palace, once home to nobility of the Habsburg dynasty, now houses the world’s largest single collection of works by celebrated Viennese painter Gustav Klimt.
Klimt’s famous masterpiece, The Kiss, is the Belvedere’s prized possession. Not only can you stand in front of the original, but you can visit the “selfie room” right next door where a poster board of the painting lets visitors pucker up and snap a picture alongside the lovebirds. Pick your favorite pose, but we like standing next to the couple and giving the classic “I knew I was going to be the third wheel” eye-roll. Make sure to experience the palace itself, which is said to be one of the most important Baroque structures in Austria, with gardens that you can peruse for free.
