Unteres Belvedere information
Built between 1714 and 1716, Lower Belvedere is a treat of baroque delights. Highlights include Prince Eugene’s former residential apartment and ceremonial rooms, the Groteskensaal (Hall of the Grotesque; now the museum shop), a second Marmorsaal (Marble Hall), the Marmorgalerie (Marble Gallery) and the Goldenes Zimmer (Golden Room). Audio guides in English cost €3.50. Often it’s only open between 10am and noon due to lack of staff.
