This is the second part of my travel diary, here you’ll find the first part.
We spent our second day visiting the Belvedere museum, Mozart’s house, and Beethoven Frieze. If you want to see the Belvedere museum, I advise you to take your time because you’ll spend here half of your day. For people under 19, the entrance is free, for people from 20-26, the price is about 8 euros. We made the tickets online, but it won’t take you so much time to do them in the museum.
The pictures are amazing, but even just the museum architecture is wonderful. The Belvedere museum is not just a baroque castle, and I think that words can’t explain the beauty of what we saw, for that reason, I’ll leave you some pictures. In every room you don’t know where to look at, at the architecture? At the pictures, the floor? You’re basically surrounded by amazing art. You would see Schiele, Klimt (here you’ll find the biggest collection of Klimt’s paintings), David, Friedrich and a lot more. The museum is divided in two parts, Upper Belvedere and Lowe Belvedere; in the upper, there are the gardens and the permanent collections, in the lower there are some temporary shows and it was the residence of Prince Eugenio di Savoia. We saw only the upper one, because the lower was closed.
After the museum, we went to see Beethoven Frieze, it is just amazing, the colors, the atmosphere, everything! If you have time, I really recommend you to go there.
After we went to Mozart’s house, that’s situated behind Stephansdom. As I told you here, the visit lasts 1h20, the audio guides are very detailed, so it would be better to get some rest before of going there because if you are tired, you won’t understand everything.
Later we had dinner at 1516 brewing company, I tried the 1516 Curry Sausages with homemade Curry Sauce, Fries & Mayo and a black and tan beer. Everithing was perfect, even the location. The prices were content, and low for Wien’s standards, we paied like 15 euro pro person.
So this is the second part of my diary, see you in the next part!
