Winter Palace of Prince Eugene of Savoie

The prince's winter palace was begun by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach (1695-1698) and completed by Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt in 1724. Behind its façade (order of Ionicpilasters, entablature decorated with statues, low reliefs) is a renvoated interior courtyard and ceremonial staircase, one of the most typical of Baroque art. Nowadays, the apartments, with decoration so sumptuous that it rivals Schönbrunn's, serve as a venue for contemporary art exhibitions.
