Great museums in a super setting. This palace once housed Prince Eugene, now it is the home of Klimt and Biedrmeyer works as well as innumerable other art treasures.
The Belvedere also features a grand view of the city from it's large, open courtyard.
No doubt you will want to see the wonderful collection of the famous Secession-era paintings and artworks, including the over-exposed but no less wonderful The Kiss by Gustav Klimt.
The collections are housed in the Belvedere palaces, which Lukas von Hildebrandt built between 1714 and 1723 as a summer residence for the military commander Prince Eugene of Savoy. After years of careful renovation, the palaces of the Upper and Lower Belvedere, together with their elegant parks, are once again a shining example of baroque art.
The famous Marble Hall in the Upper Palace is a place of great historical importance for Austria. It was here that in 1955 the foreign ministers of France, Great Britain, the Soviet Union, the USA and Austria signed the Austrian State Treaty.
