On the evening of Monday, June 27, 2022, Their Majesties King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands attended a gala state dinner at Schloss Belvedere in Wien (Vienna), Austria. The glittering gala state dinner was hosted by the Federal President of Austria, His Excellency Alexander Van der Bellen, and First Lady Doris Schmidauer.
Tonight’s setting at Schloss Belvedere has a current cultural connection to the Netherlands. Last February, the Schloss Belvedere Museum opened the exhibition entitled, Klimt: Inspired by Rodin, Van Gogh, Matisse, in collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. The exhibition explores the connection between the paintings of Gustav Klimt and the works of other artists of his time, such as Vincent Van Gogh.
Tomorrow, Their Majesties King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima will visit the integration project in the Wien’s Favoriten district. Thereafter, they will visit a community cooking kitchen, meet with Ukrainian refugees, and tour the new Sonnwendviertel housing project near Vienna’s central train station.
Their Majesties are also scheduled to visit the National Library and hold a meeting with the Austrian Chancellor, His Excellency Karl Nehammer. Tuesday evening, Their Majesties are scheduled to attend a gala concert at the Konzerthaus with a performance by the Dutch Chamber Choir.
