Mirabell Palace, Salzburg

(4.4/5 based on 4,000+ reviews on the web)
Built as a token of Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich's love for his mistress, Mirabell Palace is perhaps best known as the backdrop of "The Sound of Music." The former palace was built in 1606 and now houses the offices of the mayor and municipal council. The boxwood gardens contain mythology-themed statues from 1730, as well as four groups of sculptures representing the four elements. If you're a fan of "The Sound of Music," don't miss the horse fountain, where the von Trapp children sang "Do-Re-Mi." A stroll through the gardens will jog many memories from the film.

  • Too bad, when we went to garden, there's no flower and there's not much to see. Maybe, next summer we visit again. 
  • Garden is covered w ❄️ so nothing much to see.... but I'm sure this place is lovely during the summer. Beautiful place to visit even during the winter❤️ 
  • Who knows it not Mirabell Palace all postcards... Extremely great IN spring garden design. Sometimes it is rather difficult to take photos, because it is somewhat overloaded with Wedding couples and wedding parties... Otherwise is well worth a stroll in the Mirabell Garden. Behind the Mirabell Gardens, you should see even the Zwergerlpark. You can park just opposite the underground
