Prince Eugene Exhibition

Four rooms on the east side of the palace are devoted to a permanent presentation devoted to the life and career of Prince Eugene of Savoy.

It illustrates the reasons why the Prince, a legend in his lifetime, has never ceased to fascinate people for three centuries and how politicians, the military and art lovers have used this popularity for their own purposes, and still do. The scenes of his military battles are shown, likewise his opulently furnished properties.

A key focus is on the Prince’s pronounced passion for collecting: even during his lifetime he was noted for his love of flora and fauna and as a collector of precious books, also objets d’art and scientific instruments.
