The Belvedere Palace is a unique baroque ensemble. It consists of two parts, the lower and the upper Belvedere and has been enriched over time with the modern Belvedere 21. Not only the most architectural works leave a profound impression, but also the extensive garden between the two palaces resembles an idyllic oasis.
Unique works of art and impressive exhibitions
The complex was built in the 18th century, commissioned by Prince Eugene of Savoy. The upper Belvedere served as an exhibition venue for imperial collections during the time of Maria Theresa. As a result, Belvedere Palace considers as one of the first public museums in the world. Today there is an impressive collection of Austrian works. Among other things, you will find mostly works such as “the kiss” by Gustav Klimt or other paintings by unique artists such as Egon Schiele. In addition, the Austrian State Treaty was signed in 1955 in the upper Belvedere, so that the baroque building is also considered as historically important.
In 2002, the Belvedere Palace was expanded to include the Belvedere 21. This is a modern pavilion where contemporary art, film, music and various events meet.
Belvedere Palace – idyllic and remarkable
Between the two old buildings there is a large green area, which represents the oldest part of the ensemble. Here you can not only enjoy an idyllic atmosphere, but also admire impressive sculptures. In the botanical garden you will find a variety of plants and trees. Certain collections here are of great importance for research. In the sculpture garden at Belvedere 21, on the other hand, you can admire unique sculptures by various artists.
Whether for a relaxing walk or for exploring the historical heritage of Austria – here at Belvedere Castle you will create an unforgettable experience.
