Schloß Belvedere

This Baroque palace was once the summer residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy. Despite the fact that it was still frigid in February the first time I walked through its gardens, it instantly became one of my favorite sites in Vienna. I returned numerous times to this Schloß; these photos are from my final visit in June.

Colorful flowers in bloom everywhere!

A magnificent view of the city, mountains in the background, and elaborate gardens can be seen from in front of Upper Belvedere.
