Lotteries Day at the Belvedere in Vienna
Receipts and raffle tickets automatically become tickets to the Upper and Lower Belvedere on April 28.
This unique overall ensemble with its two palaces – the Upper and Lower Belvedere – and the extensive garden in Vienna’s third district is one of the most beautiful baroque buildings in the world, as well as a leading international museum. As part of Lotteries Day, Austrian Lotteries now makes it possible for lottery participants to visit the world-famous art collections at the Belvedere for free on Friday, April 28. All you need to do is present a receipt or ticket of an Austrian Lotteries’ game.
In the Lower Belvedere, works by Klimt and other artists such as van Gogh, Matisse and many others can be seen in impressive juxtapositions.
The Upper Belvedere goes into this aspect in great detail with “Schau! Die Sammlung Belvedere von Cranach bis EXPORT” (“Look! The Belvedere Collection from Cranach to EXPORT”) and addresses this interesting interplay between society and the arts.
Both of these buildings can also be visited in the form of guided tours. From 11:00 am to 12:00 noon, there are tours for the blind and visually impaired as well as for people with dementia and associated issues. The number of participants in the guided tours is limited, registration is not required. Detailed information can be found at lotterientag.at.
