Belvedere Garden is fit for royalty
The Belvedere Gardens are located in the third district of the city of Vienna, Austria, on the south-eastern edge of its centre.
The complex consists of an Upper Belvedere and a Lower Belvedere. The Belvedere Palace and Gardens was built during the period of Hapsburg rule. The Hapsburg’s were responsible fo a period of extensive construction in Vienna. At the time, Vienna was the imperial capital of the Austrian Empire.
This palace complex was designed and construction on this regal project started during the reign of the Hapsburg empire for Prince Eugene of Savoy.
The building was completed around 1723 and the Belvedere Gardens were opened
There are a contemporary art museum and another gallery which displays a permanent collection of Austrian art. The Palace Belvedere Gardens were designed by Bavarian garden designer Dominique Girard. The Gardens follow a concept that copies the French design of arranged trees and hedges, sculpture, fountains and cascades.
Belvedere Garden is great for the whole family. Our kids enjoyed the sculptures, waterfalls and maze-like hedges. Marley enjoyed drawing as you can see! Belvedere Garden is also good on the family budget as it costs nothing for entry to the gardens. Tours of the inside of the palace are available for a cost.
The Belvedere Garden Vienna is a great place to spend a few hours walking around the Gardens.
