There are a contemporary art museum and another gallery which displays a permanent collection of Austrian art. The Palace Belvedere Gardens were designed by Bavarian garden designer Dominique Girard.

Marley playing around at Belvedere Vienna

Belvedere Garden is great for the whole family. Our kids enjoyed the sculptures, waterfalls and maze-like hedges. Marley enjoyed drawing as you can see lol.  Belvedere Garden is also good on the family budget as it costs nothing for entry to gardens. Tours of the inside of the place are available for a cost.
