How would you describe Vienna - the capital of culture? The birthplace of the waltz? The birthplace of psychoanalysis? All of these, and more, are true characteristics of the Austrian capital. The Genius Loci (spirit of place) is packed with details and you won't find them in quite as many places as in Belvedere. Do you want to discover what works of art from the different eras can tell you about the specific Austrian and Viennese identity? Then take a tour of the Belvedere and gain an insight into the different facets of the national character. In Gustav Klimt's golden "Judith" and "The Kiss" we can explore why female sexuality is the focus of medical interest in Vienna. The troubling mood of Egon Schiele's "Embrace" and "The Girl and Death" can also help us understand why this city became the birthplace of psychoanalysis. The ornate baroque decoration of the palace, the accent on the ancient heroic themes will explain the special imperial atmosphere of the city, in which the Viennese live and in which tourists so eagerly dive. And Ferdinand Waldmüller's pellucid paintings will try to enchant us by showing the famous "Viennese cosiness" and we have to make an effort to see what tragedies lie behind these well-marketed images. The gilding of medieval altars and Klimt's golden masterpieces, the sparks of intellectual life and Viennese humour that glimmer through the sombre paintings of Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka - what really makes this famous palace's collection shine? And what exactly shows us the true face of the (former imperial) capital? The answers to these questions await you in the galleries of Belvedere Palace.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Belvedere Palace is also the site of the Austrian State Treaty. Consisting of two palaces, the Upper and Lower Belvedere, and extensive gardens the unique complex is one of the world's most supreme specimens of the Baroque architectural ensemble. Upper Belvedere Palace The magnificent structure was built in the 18th century when the Austrian general Prince Eugene of Savoy commissioned a summer residence from the famous Baroque architect Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt. After the demise of Prince Eugene, the entire complex was acquired by Empress Maria Theresa. She transformed the Upper Belvedere into an exhibition venue for the imperial collections, thus turning the place into one of the world's first public museums. In the present day, the Belvedere is one of the prominent museums across the globe with famous art collections dating all the way back to the Middle Ages. Highlights include the world's largest collection of Gustav Klimt paintings (including The Kiss), famous works from the periods of Austrian Baroque, French Impressionism, Viennese Biedermeier, and from Vienna around 1900. Lower Belvedere Palace The Lower Belvedere served as a residential building for Prince Eugene and marked the boundary between the Baroque building complex and the imperial city of Vienna. Today, the rooms of Lower Belvedere and the Orangery play host to illustrious temporary exhibitions and events. Other highlights of the palace include The Hall of Grotesques, The Marble Gallery, The Gold Cabinet, and the Palace Stables. See the stucco war trophies that proudly reflect Prince Eugene's military successes in The Marble Gallery, and see the lavish Gold Cabinet that has been displayed in its original condition since 1765. Visit The Hall of Grotesques to admire paintings preserved in their original condition, as well as the grotesques painted on the walls and ceilings. A special treat awaits art lovers in the Palace Stables, the home of priceless artworks from the Medieval collection.
