Vienna day 4

Today we went to the Belevedere museum- the summer palace of the
Hapsburg dynasty - with a major wow factor. Truly an inspiring place full of amazing art and the building and gardens are to die for- sadly we had a deadline of 2 hours before being picked up for the return to viktring.
Unfortunately the museum didn't allow photos but the Klimt pieces were stunning, although I think that a few other pieces were actually nicer than the Kiss. There were also sculptures by Rodin , paintings by Schiele , Oppenheimer and many others. The Klimt shop was deadly.
We then headed to Klagenfurt with an unexpected deviation that added an extra 11/2 hours to the trip. A bit squishy for 5 hours.
