A perfect crescendo to your day awaits you atop Gloriette, the grand war memorial created for Maria Theresa in 1775. As you climb the staircase, you can admire shields and lions sculpted by Johann Baptist Hagenauer. You will be in awe when you reach the nearly 200 foot rooftop. Stand behind the balustrade and among the massive trophies. Below your feet is a panoramic view of The Great Parterre’s sculpted flowerbeds, the rows of mythological deities, the expansive edifice of Schönbrunn Palace and the city of Vienna in the horizon.
