"Flowers & foliage" Belvedere Palace & Gardens Tip by iandsmith

Belvedere Palace & Gardens, Vienna: 182 reviews and 355 photos

  A different kind of foliage
by iandsmith

I mischeviously clicked on the "flowers and foliage" button for this one. Couldn't help myself really. You have to imagine it in spring colour with the lawn laid out in splendour rolling towards the original palace, now an art gallery and museum.
The European gardens are so unlike those I'm used to with their emphasis on clipped hedges and gravel paths interspersed with neo-classical fountains.
With the statuary beside me, the large dome of Karlskirche beckons in the distance.

Address: the baroque castle of Prinz Eugen
Directions: Between Schweizergarten & Schwarzenbergplatz
