Presentation
Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663-1736), successful general and art connoisseur, had Belve-dere garden palace built by Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt as his summer residence – at the time it was still outside the gates of the city.
This baroque architectural jewel consists of two palaces (Upper and Lower Belvedere), which today house Austrian art from the Middle Ages to the present day.


Lower Belvedere - Prince Eugene’s apartments and staterooms

The construction work of the Lower Belvedere lasted from 1712 till 1716. The architect was Johann Lucas von Hildebrandt, who built several buildings for Prince Eugen and was the most important Austrian baroque architect together with Johann Bernhard Fischer.

The entrance leads through the middle gate emblazoned with arms and initials into the Ehrenhof and from there into the Marble Hall originally. The Lower Belvedere served as a residential palace whereas the Upper Belvedere served for representative purposes in particular. Besides this, the Lower Belvedere also held parts of the princes’ collections.

Intriguing special exhibitions are today staged in the Lower Belvedere and the Orangery.
