Belvedere

Bel Silenzio

The baroque rooms of the Upper Belvedere with the world-famous art collection are open just for you on this evening and invite you to a quiet, meditative visit. The name says it all. An expertly guided meditation leads you into a unique art experience: let go, immerse yourself and perceive, with all your senses and inner attentiveness. Trace the secrets and special features of Gustav Klimt's kiss or Egon Schiele's house wall. Let the colours, the materials, the structures and the motifs take effect and give yourself and the works of art time. This too is a museum - in the Belvedere.

The meditation of Karoline Gawrzynski is based on the tradition of Kundalini Yoga. It is characterised by dynamic physical exercises (asanas) and conscious breathing (pranayama), which lead to deep relaxation and inner peace. The participants can thus enjoy the subsequent exhibition tour with a focused perception and let the works of art appear in silence.

Suitable for all participants regardless of age or physical fitness.
