Mirabell Palace, Salzburg

4.4
#1 of 366 in Parks in Austrian Alps
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.

  • The structure on the outside is very stylish but unfortunately only a small part is open to the public! The grounds are not particularly extensive.

  • Beautiful garden and lots of history. Kid friendly great place to walk through and get some fresh air. A lot of picture moments as some of the sound of music was filmed there.  more »

  • It is really awesome place to take pictures and go for a walk. I went to Mirabell Garden in March so many flowers were not in full bloom. However, I could see some groups who took wedding pictures. I recommend you going to the Garden in summer. I bet you really love the place !
  • Beautiful marble statues line its marble staircase that leads you to an intimate concert hall where you can enjoy classical performances. The gardens are open year round with some flowers, however, the warmer seasons are much more ideal for the view.
  • So romantic for an stroll and chilling in the park. You can definitely find some quiet zones for a short nap. The design of the park and it's flowers is just amazing.
  • Beautiful. But if you have seen Versailles, it will fall short of expectations. Statues nothing compared to Italian creations. Overall lovable and settings superb.
  • Beautiful location, definitely worth a visit. The children loved the open space and especially the playground next-door to the Palace.
