the Neptune fountain is situated right in front of you ,at the end if the flower carpets under the Gloriette. It seems to be operated by a computer that is in charge of the water jets - when I first saw it , it was working , the next moment - no water coming out of it. Go figure.....
It was conceived as part of the overall design of the gardens and park commissioned by Maria Theresa in the 1770s.
