Belvedere

Recommended
Vienna owes Belvedere not to an Emperor but a general, Eugène of Savoy, one of the most inspired of the time. Returning to more princely activities after his victorious campaigns against the Turks and Louis XIV, he commissioned the finest Baroque ensemble in Vienna. The two palaces, built between 1716 and 1722, are linked by a formal garden. The Lower Belvedere houses the Baroque collections, and the Upper Belvedere is home to the Art Gallery containing 19C and 20C works.
