Belvedere

Is a historic building complex in Vienna, Austria, consisting of two Baroque Palaces. ( the upper and lower Belvedere)

Upper Belvedere

At the heart of the collections at the Belvedere are the works of Gustav Klimt with his golden paintings “The Kiss” and “Judith”. The masterpieces by Schiele and Kokoschka as well as works of French Impressionists and highlights of the Vienna Biedermeier era compete the collection

Lower Belvedere

The feudal splendor of the palace’s aristocratic owner is reflected in the Hall of Grotesques, the Marble Gallery, and the Golden Room. Intriguing special exhibitions are staged in the Lower Belvedere and the Orangery.

The Belvedere was build during a period of extensive construction in Vienna, which at that time   was both the imperial capital and home to the ruling Habsburg dynasty.
