Upper Belvedere

The Upper Belvedere was designed by Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt as summer residence for Prince Eugene of Savoy and constructed between 1721 and 1722. On May 15, 1955 the Austrian State Treaty which re-established Austria as a sovereign state after the Second World War, has been signed in the Marble Hall. Today the Upper Belvedere houses the "Österreichische Galerie Belvedere" museum where you can see the world´s largest Klimt collection.
