Castle Belvedere with fountain | Vienna


Surrounded by some of Vienna’s best-known sights, you can explore the nearby Belvedere Palace and its Botanical Garden with banana palms and lemon trees growing in the picturesque pavilion guarding its entrance. You will feel yourself start to blossom as you enjoy a leisurely stroll among countless varieties of exotic flora in the heart of Vienna. In fact, it will seem for all the world like a holiday within a holiday. Admission to the Botanical Garden is completely free of charge.

Like the Belvedere, the famous 21er Haus planned by the visionary architect Karl Schwanzer is just a stone’s throw away from the hotel. Built in 1958 as the Austrian pavilion for Expo 58 in Brussels, it was reconstructed in Vienna in 1962 and has provided a space for contemporary art to thrive ever since.
