The Gloriette is located in the gardens of Schönbrunn Palace. Built in 1775 under the reign of Empress Maria Theresia it was meant to be a "temple of glory" and also a view point. In 1780 it was equipped with glass windows and became a location for dinner and festivities. The dining room was used as such until the end of the monarchy, today it houses a café. From the Gloriette you can enjoy a beautiful view of the town!


  1. This is a great place to spend the day, particularly when it is warm and sunny. I was there last summer. I must post a photo.
