"The Gloriette" is the gate/portico (similar to the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin) on the hill about a mile from the actual palace. It does have a café in it.
 

Photo credit to Leslie Turek. This photo is taken in about the same spot of the spoiler photos of Tim/Marie running. Just shows how far it is from the Palace to the Gloriette.

The maze is about halfway from the palace to the Gloriette. It is near the Neptune fountain.

It appears that the Pit Stop is in front of the Gloriette, according to this photo.




From the screen caps, it appears the confessionals are at the end of the Gloriette. (from ZouLy)

From personal experience, that will not be a fun climb in race mode with a backpack.

There are of lots of palaces in Vienna. Possibilities at Schoenbrunn Palace for the chandelier and waltzing are the Hall of Mirrors and Grand Gallery. They both have historical significance. Someone with better eyes than me can try to do the match up.

Wiener Sängerknaben is the Vienna Boy's Choir, so Tim/Marie finish before Jason/Amy in the task, and that's where the taxi theft takes place.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

To go along with the Cab stealing drama that was in the preview... Jason called Marie a "Cab Klepto" on twitter.  That has to be related to this upcoming episode  :funny:

maze before pitstop! :yess:
maybe the cab stealing happen right before pitstop since Jason-Amy and Tim-Marie argue about that at the pitstop.. i wonder who come first between the two teams..

So typical things when going to Vienna. We have seen the waltzing in TAR4 FF, which was in the Schönbrunn Palace, which is also an ARI and a pitstop this time.

Then, I will miss the Donauturm, (best bungee jump site IMHO).

And, in the waltzing cap, there is The bunnies (probably) searching for something. Could also remind me of TAR4 Venice Roadblock of recognizing masks? Or a way of dressing?

Maybe I'm going blind in my advanced age but that looks like a train station (what with the train tracks and people perilously close to an open edge), no?
