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!



Look at that detail! And this was just his summer home..


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


Lower Belvedere is seen here, at the lower end of the gardens.
