Directions to Belvedere Museum and Palais
What is the story behind this incredible palace right in the centre of Vienna?
Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663-1736), successful general and art connoisseur, had the Belvedere garden palace built as his summer residence – at the time it was still outside the gates of the city.
This baroque architectural jewel consists of two palaces (Upper and Lower Belvedere), which today house Austrian art from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Check out the Upper Belvedere - with the world's largest Klimt collection: you will be able to see his golden paintings “The Kiss” and “Judith”. Don't forget the masterpieces by Schiele and Kokoschka as well as works of French Impressionism and highlights of the Vienna Biedermeier era (Waldmüller, Amerling, Fendi) - it is every bit as impressive as the other paintings.
Then visit the Lower Belvedere: Prince Eugene’s apartments and staterooms. The feudal splendor is reflected in incredible rococo interior design! It also houses special and temporary exhibitions - check the website for further information.
Recently the stables were renovated and opened to the public. They once housed the prince's 12 finest horses: today you will find the Belvedere's entire medieval art collection here.
