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.

  • Was in Salzburg in March. The gardens are still in "sleep" State, thus not fired special impressions. But even at this time, you can imagine a riot of colors and smells when all blossoms. Therefore it is better to go there from the middle of spring.

  • Unforgettable by those impeccable gardens where were recorded scenes from the film the sound of music. Visit, review the film and if wow for being in that wonderful place.

  • We were as a family there & wanted to explore some Salzburg. Visit at warm temperatures when all flowers are in bloom and the Sun is shining. Perfect backdrop for photographers. Also great to walk around with many seating areas.
