Belvedere Castle

Belvedere Castle

Visit Gustav Klimt’s legendary painting, ‘The Kiss’ and important works by Schiele and Kokoschka. And take a moment to marvel in the splendour of the Baroque palace complex and its vast garden. Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663–1736), a successful commander and an art lover, had the Belvedere garden palace built by Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt as a summer residence – outside the city gates at that time. The comprehensive Baroque work of art consists of two palaces (Upper and Lower Belvedere) and today houses Austrian art from the Middle Ages to the present.
