Palace of the Belvedere

Recommended
Vienna owes the palaces of the Belvedere not to an emperor but to a general,Eugene of Savoy . 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 aformal garden . TheLower Belvedere houses temporary collections and the medieval treasure; theUpper Belvedere is home to the art collections from the Middle Ages to the 20C.
