The restoration of historic windows at the Belvedere Palace is in full swing – an essential measure both in terms of climate control and conservation. For this reason, from 5 September to 30 October 2020, individual galleries of the permanent exhibition in the “Vienna around 1900” section will not be open to the public. Gustav Klimt's Kiss and other highlights of the collection, however, will continue to be accessible.

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 Upper Belvedere was finished in 1723 and used for purpose of prestige and display before the eventful history started. It was one of the first Public Museum, an imperial residence and here in 1955 the Austrian State Treaty was signed. Today the Upper Belvedere is the most visited art museum in Austria – with highlights by Klimt, Schiele, Funke, Monet, and van Gogh.
