Mirabell Palace, Salzburg
(4.4/5 based on 3,800+ 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.

  • If you've seen The Sound of Music, you've seen many shots of these gardens. Very nice place to stroll -- and in December, there's a Christkindlmarkt just out in front on the sidewalks. 
  • We went there on November 2016. It was very peaceful and not crowded at all. Maybe because we went there quite early (10am). There's still some colorful flowers in the garden. I wish to visit there ag...  more »
