Belvedere PalaceDistance from hotel 1,5 km
Visit Gustav Klimt's legendary painting "The Kiss" and important works by Schiele and Kokoschka and thrill at the grandeur of the Baroque palace complex and its extensive gardens.
Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663-1736), a successful general and art-lover, had the Belvedere garden palace built by Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt as a summer residence. At that time it stood outside the city limits.
This Baroque work of art consists of two palaces (upper and lower Belvedere) and today houses Austrian art from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Upper Belvedere – largest collection of Klimt works in the world
The heart of the Belvedere collection is Gustav Klimt with his golden paintings "The Kiss " and "Judith". Masterpieces by Schiele and Kokoschka as well as French Impressionist works and highlights of the Vienna Biedermeier period (Waldmüller, Amerling, Fendi) stand next to paintings by Makart, Boeckl, Wotruba, Hausner, Hundertwasser, etc.
Schönbrunn PalaceDistance from hotel 6,5 km
Visit Schönbrunn Palace, Elisabeth of Austria’s (Sisi’s) former summer residence. This Baroque building has enchanting parkland, a palm house, a gloriette and the oldest existing zoo in the world. Spend a day at Schönbrunn: visit the display rooms on a “grand tour with audio guide”, take a look at the splendid ceremonial rooms and sumptuously furnished saloons and wander through the labyrinth.
Schönbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of the imperial family, is one of the most beautiful Baroque complexes in Europe. In the possession of the Habsburgs since 1569, the wife of Emperor Ferdinand II. had a pleasure palace built on the plot in 1642 and called it "Schönbrunn" for the first time. The palace and gardens erected as from 1696 after the Turkish siege were fundamentally redesigned after 1743 under Maria Theresia. The Habsburgs resided in the countless rooms which a large imperial family required in additions to the state rooms for most of the year.
