Architecture and History

The two Belvedere palaces were built in the early eighteenth century by the famous Baroque architect Johann Lucas von Hildebrandt to be used as the summer residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663–1736).

The Lower Belvedere was finished in 1716 and used as residence. Today here are exhibitions shown with international reputation.
