The Gloriette at Schönbrunn
The Gloriette at Schönbrunn, a elegant pavilion is a miniature reproduction of the Palace of Schönbrunn. A gloriette (from the 12th century French for “little glory") is a building in a garden erected on a site that is elevated with respect to the surroundings. The structure and shape can vary greatly, often in the form of a pavilion or tempietto, more or less open on the sides. The Gloriette at Schönbrunn is a pavilion with two wings that are open porticos with a beautiful view of the city from its rooftop.
