Schönbrunn's Gloriette
Vienna in Autumn

Schönbrunn's Gloriette
Approaching from the north-east entrance
of the palace gardens during golden hour

South Façade
Facing the park and the palace
at the bottom of the hill

Looking Eastwards
A path leading toward the eastern gate
and a view of the city beyond

View from the Gloriette
Schönbrunn Palace at the bottom of the hill
in golden evening light, moments after the sun
disappeared behind a bank of clouds in the west

  1. Wunderschön! Der Himmel macht die Fotos perfekt!

  2. I'm envious. Magnificent setting, and you capture it so beautifully.

  3. Those were the days for the rich who could afford to build a Gloriette for no particular reason. At least it gives us a wonderful sight of a bygone era.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
