Very impressive monument which can easily be seen from the Palace, on the gardens side. A bit of walk to get there but I understand there is also a small bus you can take to get there. We didn't.

Standard cafe (for Vienna) but beautiful views. Can walk or take the little bus from Schonbrunn's main entrance.

It is located in the park of Schönbrunn Palace. The top has excellent views across Vienna. From the Schönbrunn Palace to Gloriette you can either walk or take the tourist train.

Well worth the entrance fee, I could have stayed up there for an hour just sitting in the sun and admiring the view.

Reward yourself with a walk up to it from the gardens... reward comes in the form of great views and in the food. Service is quick. Recommend the apple strudel with cream.

A steep climb to get up there, especially if its hot and you've just been round the palace (beautiful, but an ordeal due to the crowds). When I arrived, I was more than ready for a break, and I soon found the rather lovely cafe...More

Even though it was hot the day we visited Vienna, we made the hike up the hill to see this impressive looking building. Pretty photographs of the Gloriette reflected in the pond in front of it. Unfortunately not much else to do up there unless...More

In all honesty, it is here for the view to back down where you were. If smart, take the tram/trolley (paid), and soak in the views. Stop for a drink, snack or other at the restaurant inside. Then hike back down in the shade on...More

I had the unique opportunity to attend a private party at the Gloriette. Catering was fantastic, the view onto town and castle Schönbrunn and its gardens is stunning. There's plenty of small paths to stroll around. Just awesome!

Vienna’s 13th district has always been in the shadow
of Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens, but has
interesting hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
Allow half a day for the imposing Habsburg residence
and the gardens with Gloriette belvedere. Reserve the
other half to discover the secret charms of this posh
residential neighborhood. Sneak out of the gardens at
Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down

Runs daily from 10:00 am to 18:00 (6:00 pm). Stops every hour and every half-hour at the Gloriette Hill and the Schönbrunn Palace.

No, you cannot walk around the gardens or up the hill 24/7. There are opening and closing hours for the park as well. Go to their site and you can see what the working hours are, all depends on the season. The parks are free.
