Vienna - Schloss Belvedere to the Canal (PDF Chapter)

If you only see one palace in Vienna, make it Schloss Belvedere. What giddy romance is evoked in its sumptuously frescoed baroque halls. Belvedere is overwhelming in both scale and substance, and engrosses from start to finish.

- draw breath as you ramble through Schloss Belvedere’s 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 at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Sports & Activities.

About the Authors

Chris Raven (L) Simon Raven (R)
Simon Raven and Chris Raven were born in the United Kingdom. ‘Living the Linger’ was first published in 2005, and follows the brothers on a journey of lost love and search for the truth as they traverse Interstate 15 across backcountry USA. Simon and Chris became established as overland travel writers a year later with the publication of ‘Driving the Trans-Siberian’ in 2006 and ‘Carnival Express’ in 2007. The travel writing duo have since driven full circle around the Black Sea, traversed the Trans-oceanic highway from the Pacific to the Atlantic coast of South America and in 2007 travelled the road to Damascus. In addition to co-writing four travel books, they have documented and photographed multiple off the beaten track destinations across the globe including China’s deep south, tribal India and the Balkan peninsula.

Simon and Chris have been noted by Lonely Planet for their talent to portray an “accurate view of what to expect”.
