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.

  • Very nice garden in baroque style (like everything else in Salzburg) and a part of the Historic Centre. Did not visit the palace with its famous Marble Hall and Angel Staircase so this review only...

  • Beautiful garden and an elegant palace. My only complaint is you only get one room and a staircase to enjoy on the interior. The exterior garden is beautiful with views of the Fortress and the Alps...

  • Amazing architecture all around, fabulous rose garden. History everywhere. Would have been even better if we hadn't been so tired from a long day of walking. Could be a serene place to sit and enjoy. Also very close to our hotel so we can come back for another visit before leaving Salzburg.
  • We only briefly walked through the gardens here bit it was still quite a beautiful spot. If you've got time in Salzburg then definitely go visit, but if you're limited on time don't worry about missing it. On the plus side it's on the way to the fortress from the train station, so don't use the tram, walk through the gardens here instead, it's not a long walk.
