    Vienna - Belvedere Palace

    June 27, 2016 in Austria ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    We are only in Vienna for a day so it is going to be a busy day.

    First stop Belvedere Palace, Prince Eugene of Savoy 1663-1736 was a general and an art connoisseur, he built the Belvedere palace as his summer residence.

    Today, the Belvedere, one of the most important baroque buildings in Austria.

    The palace consists of two seperate buildings, the Upper and Lower Belvedere, which are connected by a stunning baroque garden

    Today it houses not only Austrian art from the Middle Ages to the present day, but also the world's largest Klimt collection, with the golden paintings "The Kiss" and "Judith" as the highlights. Masterpieces by Schiele and Kokoschka, as well as works of French Impressionism and the Vienna Biedermeier era round out the exhibition.

    Prince Eugene’s apartments and staterooms are located at the Lower Belvedere. The feudal splendor of the palace’s aristocratic original owner is reflected in the Hall of Grotesques, the Marble Gallery, and the Golden Room. The Lower Belvedere and the Orangery are used mainly for temporary exhibitions, while the Palace Stables are now home to some 150 objects of sacred medieval art that blend with the Baroque ambiance in a compelling fashion. The Palace Gardens are unfolding in strict symmetry along a central axis to the prestige building of the Upper Belvedere and features beautiful sculptures, fountains and cascades.

    Schöne Zeit am Schloss Belvedere

    May 21, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Die Menschenmassen hier waren nicht nur an dem beeindruckenden Schloss und der Gartenanlage interessiert, sondern auch an der exklusiven Ausstellung von Werken Gustav's Klimt, ein Künstler der Wiener Moderne.
    Die Sammlung des Belvedere umfasst mehrere Tausend Werke aus 8 Jahrhunderten Kunstgeschichte. Es bietet einen neuen Blick auf die österreichische Kunst vom Mittelalter bis in die Gegenwart. Wir waren leider trotzdem nicht drin.Read more

    Jardines de Belvedere

    August 23, 2015 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Hemos ido a ver los jardines de Belvedere, que construyó el Príncipe Eugenio porque le gustaba mucho la jardinería. Están entre dos palacios que ahora son museos y a los que no hemos entrado, aunque en uno de ellos esta el Beso de Klint.

    En primavera tienen que ser una pasada pero ahora mismo, en el prematuro otoño vienés están un poco pelados.

    Como hoy es domingo aquí está todo chapado, así que hemos desayunado café para llevar y pretzels del badulaque que hay al lado del hotel. Están muy ricos!

    Vienna: Castello del Belvedere

    April 3, 2011 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Il Castello del Belvedere fu costruito come residenza estiva del Principe Eugenio di Savoia. Oggi accoglie un museo d'arte e del suo interno originale resta ben poco.
    Il complesso del Castello Belvedere (Schloss Belvedere) è formato da due palazzi, uniti fra di loro da un giardino in stile francese.
    Nel punto più alto del giardino, si trova il Belvedere Superiore (Oberes Belvedere), l'edificio principale del Castello, con una facciata realmente sofisticata.
    L’interno è deludente, poiché non ha l'aspetto di un palazzo. Sono infatti decorati soltanto il Salone di Marmola, la cappella e la hall. Le altre sale non mostrano un apparato decorativo sontuoso, ma accolgono le collezioni del Museo Belvedere, dal Medioevo ai nostri giorni.
    Al pianoterra vi è la cappella e, inoltre, si tovano gli spazi espositivi con opere prodotte dal Medievo al Barocco. Al primo piano, sono esposti i lavori d’artisti viennesi, realizzati fra il 1880 e il 1900. Al secondo piano ci sono le opere del Neoclassicismo e del Romanticismo, oltre alla collezione Biedermeier. 
    Nel percorso espositivo del Belvedere Superiore si possono contemplare i lavori di artisti famosi, come Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Max Beckman, Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele e Oskar Kokoschka. Fra i capolavori del museo, vi è "Il bacio" di Klimt e "Gli amanti (L'abbraccio)" di Schiele. 
    Più piccolo e con una facciata meno impressionante, rispetto a quella del Belvedere Superiore, l’edificio del Belvedere Inferiore (Unteres Belvedere) espone le opere del Barocco austriaco, con lavori d’artisti che diedero forma alla città, durante l’Epoca d’Oro di Vienna.
    Alcune delle stanze più importanti del palazzo sono la Sala dei Grotteschi, la Galleria di Marmo e il Salone degli Specchi, tutte in stile barocco.
    Vicino al Belvedere Inferiore vi è l'elegante edificio, utilizzato in passato come serra. Attualmente, qui si realizzano le esposizioni temporali del Museo Belvedere.
    Contrariamente al Palazzo Hofburg e Schönbrunn, il Castello del Belvedere non merita troppo la pena per il suo apparato decorativo. A chi non interessa l'arte, si consiglia di osservare il Palazzo Belvedere dall'esterno e di fare una passeggiata nei suoi giardini. Al contrario, gli appassionati d'arte non potranno restistere a entrare negli spazi espositivi del Castello, per osservare da vicino il leggendario "bacio" di Gustav Klimt e i capolavori di Schiele e Kokoschka.
