In the heart of Vienna, a cultural gem awaits: the Belvedere, one of the world's premier museums. This magnificent complex is home to an astonishing art collection spanning from the Middle Ages to the present day. The Upper and Lower Belvedere palaces, surrounded by lush gardens, form a breathtaking Baroque architectural ensemble that ranks among the most impressive in the world. Art enthusiasts will delight in the museum's unparalleled collection, which includes the largest assembly of Gustav Klimt paintings globally, as well as notable works from the Viennese Biedermeier, Austrian Baroque, and French Impressionist periods. After a long hiatus, the museum is once again hosting large-scale special exhibitions that are sure to captivate visitors. The Belvedere's history dates back to the 18th century, when Austrian general Prince Eugene of Savoy commissioned renowned architect Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt to design the complex. Following Prince Eugene's demise, Empress Maria Theresa acquired the estate and transformed the Upper Belvedere into a public exhibition space, paving the way for one of the world's first public museums. Today, the Lower Belvedere, formerly Prince Eugene's residence, hosts distinguished exhibitions, while the stunning Baroque gardens, ranked among the world's most beautiful, extend over three expansive terraces between the two palaces. The Belvedere park also boasts a Botanical Garden and Europe's oldest Alpine garden. Some of the museum's current and upcoming exhibitions include: * Ongoing: A comprehensive showcase of the Belvedere Collection, featuring works from Cranach to EXPORT * 9 November 2023 - 11 February 2024: A special exhibition dedicated to Gustav Klimt's Adele Bloch-Bauer II * 24 November 2023 - 19 June 2024: Nedko Solakov's A Cornered Solo Show #3, featuring Charles Esche as artistic conscience * 19 October 2023 - 14 April 2024: CARLONE CONTEMPORARY presents Michail Michailov's Dust to Dust * 12 April 2024 - 29 September 2024: IN-SIGHT: Franz Anton Maulbertsch * 21 February 2025 - 7 September 2025: Gustav Klimt Pigment & Pixel Please note that the Upper Belvedere will undergo facade renovation on its north and west sides starting April 8, 2024.
