Mirabell Palace, Salzburg

(4.5/5 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.

  • Mirabell Park were both in winter and in summer. In each case, descending from the upper part of the city. Few tourists, bizarre forms of greenery give the impression of a fairy tale. Be sure to visit the Mirabell Gardens, enjoy a cup of coffee in the surrounding coffee shops

  • Beautiful venue, very pretty lawns. The castle structure unfortunately is not proportionate to the layout as it was burnt and redone in 1800 and it's design and architecture changed from the original....  more »
  • In this place, you can admire the beauty in the middle of the city. It is wonderful in the Sun, the beautiful design of the garden!

  • Fun to walk around and see where they shot the scenes for the Sound of Music while dodging Pokemon Go crowds.
  • Gosh! The sculptures in there are incredibly amazing with some tantalizing glimpses of the ancient Austria
  • Everyone visited Schloss Mirabell to admire its beauty, but neglect a children playground next to it. A very high slide is a must to taste the speed.
  • Stunning place for a gentle stroll. The gardens are beautiful
  • Its a nice place to relax and eat an icecream.
