Location: Lower Belvedere and Orangery

Two hundred years ago Vienna became, for a period of several months, the political, cultural, and social hub of Europe. At the so-called Congress of Vienna, the most prominent sovereigns and their delegates devised the reorganization of the European continent, which had lost its political stability during the Napoleonic Wars. Diplomatic negotiations were accompanied by social events and entertainments of all sorts, the splendour of which was captured in numerous written and visual documents. Vienna was flourishing as a centre of cultural life, with artists from around the globe coming to the imperial city and providing inspiration for all genres of domestic art production. From February 2015 on, the Belvedere will devote a comprehensive exhibition to the Congress of Vienna, thereby elucidating both the political and social aspects of this extraordinary event, which kept all of Europe in suspense.
