Description of Belvedere Palace and Museum

BOOK
Viena Austria
Belvedere means ‘beautiful sight’ and there is perhaps none more beautiful in Vienna than the Belvedere palace and gardens. Commissioned as his summer retreat by war hero Prince Eugene of Savoy in the late 17th century,it reflects his tastes as an art connoisseur. This baroque architectural jewel consists of two palaces,Upper and Lower Belvedere. The Upper contains world's largest Klimt collection and Lower,where Prince Eugene’s apartments and staterooms were,today houses Austrian art from the Middle Ages to the present. The palace was designed by the renowned architect Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt.

The new 21er Haus museum is not only extremely interesting from an architectural point of view but is also intensively engaged in Austrian art of the 20th and 21st centuries. The impressive building was constructed by leading architect Karl Schwanzer as the Austria pavilion for the World Exhibition in 1958 and opened as a museum for the art of the 20th century in Vienna in 1962.

The orangery was originally a winter garden with heating system for orange trees. After the death of Prince Eugene and the relocation of the orangery to Schönbrunn,the plant house was renovated and used as stall. After 1918 a part of the Modern Gallery and,from 1953 till 2007,the museum of middle age art were both housed in this building. In 2007,the architect Susanne Zottl designed a modern exhibition hall as a white cube in the orangery.
