your experience

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Belvedere Palace is also the site of the Austrian State Treaty. Consisting of two palaces, the Upper and Lower Belvedere, and extensive gardens the unique complex is one of the world's most supreme specimens of Baroque architectural ensemble.

The magnificent structure was built in the 18th century when the Austrian general Prince Eugene of Savoy commissioned a summer residence from the famous Baroque architect Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt. After the demise of Prince Eugene, the entire complex was acquired by Empress Maria Theresa. She transformed the Upper Belvedere into an exhibition venue for the imperial collections, thus turning the place into one of the world's first public museums.

In the present day, the Belvedere is one of the prominent museums across the globe with famous art collections dating all the way back to the Middle Ages. Highlights include the world's largest collection of Gustav Klimt paintings (including The Kiss and Judith), famous works from the periods of Austrian Baroque, French Impressionism, Viennese Biedermeier, and from Vienna around 1900. You can also admire works by Austrian artists like Rueland Frueauf the Elder, Elena Luksch-Makowsky, and Helene Funke, apart from international artists like Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, and Auguste Rodin.
