3/43.- Vienna, Belvedere Palace


Here we are! What a great building, isn’t it? Nowadays inside the Palace there’s the Austrian Gallery, with 19th and 20th centuries Austrian and International works, among others there are works of Amerling, Hausner, Hundertwasser, Klimt, Kokoscha, Romako, Schiele, Waldmüller, and some French impressionists too.

The Belvedere Palace was built in 1721-22, when Prince Eugene of Savoy --during the war against the Turks, Commander in Chief of the Imperial Army-- asked Johan Lukas von Hildebrandt to construct a Summer palace. He actually never lived here.

We’ll now take a look at the other side of the palace, where there’s a wonderful park and the Lower Belvedere Palace.
