Amazing baroque palace group. There are 2 palaces : Lower Belvedere and Upper Belvedere. Both palaces were projected in the begiining of XVIII century by Lukas von Hildebrandt. Between the facades of the Palaces you can see the nice garden projected
in French style.

Belvedere was built for the Prinz Eugen of Savoy who was the most famous commander military in Austrian's history.

There is the Art Gallery in the Upper Belvedere now. You can see the works of Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele , Oskar Kokoschka there and others.

In the Lower Belvedere there is a Museum of Baroque's Art and there are also a lot of works mostly Austrian artists of the turn of centuries XVII and XVIII.

Address: the baroque castle of Prinz Eugen
