Belvedere Palace

The Belvedere in Vienna’s third district (just near the Südbahnhof and the Schwarzenbergplatz) was originally built as the summer palace of Prince Eugen von Savoyen, a famous and successful military leader in the eighteenth century. Designed by Austrian baroque architect Lukas von Hildebrandt it is worth a visit just due to its architectural style. However, its museum is also show casting the world’s largest Gustav Klimt collection together with an array of other famous Austrian artists like Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka.

Old View of the Basilica Mariazell

The Basilica Mariazell is located a two hour car-ride in the South-West of Vienna. Probably not that prominent at an international level it is an important pilgrim location for Roman-Catholics. Pope Johannes Paul II (in 1983) and Pope Benedict XVI (2007) visited Mariazell during their official voyages to Austria.

 

Fortress Hohensalzburg

The Fortress Hohensalzburg is the dominant landmark of Salzburg, the city of Mozart. Towering above the old city this castle dates back as early as to the twelfth century. Continuously revamped and fortified it grew to one of the mightiest castles in Central Europe ensuring the power of the Roman-Catholic Archbishops who ruled Salzburg until the late eighteenth century.
