HOW TO GET THERE
Route 1: You may reach Mayer’s Gloriette if you walk up the forest paths and stone steps past the chamois statue directly from the Hot Spring in the centre of Karlovy Vary.
Route 2: An easier alternative is to take the Diana funicular from Grandhotel Pupp to the Jelení skok (Deer Jump) intermediate station. From there, continue along the nice path past the Myslivna (Gamekeeper's Lodge) Sanatorium across Peter’s Height to the gazebo.
HISTORY OF THE STRUCTURE
The wooden lookout gazebo known as Mayer’s Gloriette was built in 1804 by Mr. Mayer, a wealthy Viennese merchant and Karlsbad native, on a rock at Jelení skok directly above the spa centre. Freely accessible all year round, the gazebo offering a spectacular view of the town centre in the picturesque valley of the Teplá River has become a sought after resting spot of spa guests on their way to Petrova výšina (Peter’s Height).
