Belvedere Gate

Behind this beautiful baroque gate lies the Upper Belvedere which was built as a summer residence for Prince Eugene of Savoy and which now houses the "Österreichische Galerie Belvedere" museum. If you zoom in, you can see that the lions carry the Prince´s coat of arms.

  1. I'm a follower of Genie's Paris and Beyond blog, and I've found you there. Your blog is really interesting. You do capture the real city very well.
    I've only been once at Vienna but I've always wanted to come back. May be following your blog will prepare me for that, so you've got a new follower now :-).
    My blog is more varied but you might find interesting some of its sections too.
