Vienna - Schloss Belvedere to the Canal (Chapter)
This is the Schloss Belvedere to the Canal chapter from Lonely Planet's Vienna guidebook.
The absolute highlight of this neighbourhood is Schloss Belvedere and gardens. As compelling as Belvedere is, though, it can also be rewarding to explore lesser-known corners of Vienna's third district, Landstrasse. Here, elegant backstreets lead to art-nouveau cafes, low-key market squares and houses bearing the psychedelic imprint of artistic wild-child Hundertwasser.
- draw breath as you ramble through Schloss Belvedere, taking in lavishly frescoed apartments, sculpture-strewn gardens and a gallery home to the ultimate embrace: Klimt's The Kiss
- be dazzled by Hundertwasser's wonky floors, madcap mosaics and hallucinatory colours at KunstHausWien
- rewind a century to the dawn of a modernist age while exploring the Museum für Angewandte Kunst
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Neighbourhood Walk: Grand Designs in Landstrasse, Sleeping, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment and Sports & Activities.
