Schönbrunn Palace park with view of the Gloriette

You are here:

The Gloriette

Walkers making their way through Schönbrunn Palace park are usually heading for the Gloriette. The Gloriette towers over the surrounding area of Schönbrunn, drawing attention to itself from all sides. The monumental, baroque garden structure was built in 1775 on the foothills of the Vienna Woods. As you might expect, the Gloriette boasts spectacular views over Vienna. They say if you were not up there, you haven't been to Schönbrunn. Emperor Franz Joseph I and Sisi were also truly fond of the place. They set up a breakfast hall in the Gloriette. Nowadays, visitors can follow their footsteps. The Gloriette is still home to a café. After all, you will want to replenish those calories that you burnt on the way up here.
