Belvedere’s Orangery

The Orangery was initially a heated nursery for citrus trees. The construction of Orangerie was exceptional in that its roof and façade could be taken off during the summer. The trees were moved to Schönbrunn Palace's Pomeranzenhaus after Prince Eugene's death. In 1805, the Orangery's retractable roof was renovated and transformed into stables. Later, in order to create a contemporary, white-cube exhibition space, the Orangery's interior was renovated again in 2007.

The Belvedere Gardens

The Belvedere Gardens connect the Upper and Lower Palaces and showcase many statues and fountains. It was created following Hildebrandt's overarching vision of a terraced park with waterfalls and symmetrical staircases bordered by hedges and walks. You can enjoy breathtaking views of the garden and Vienna Woods from the terrace across from Upper Belvedere.
