Situated in the middle of the woods on Schönbrunn Hill near the Maria Theresa Gate lies the Little Gloriette (Kleine Gloriette), a tower-like
two storeyed pavilion which was built around 1775, probably to designs by Isidore Marcellus Amandus Canevale (also known as Isidor Canevale).
The octogonal structure with its balconies and built-on stairwell was probably used as a viewing pavilion.
The interior is decorated with Rococo architectural murals which on the second floor open up above a balustrade into a painted sky.
