Mirabell Palace, Salzburg

4.4
#1 of 440 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.

  • Went here for a Mozart concert, had so much fun! Not only were the musicians amazing but of course the Palace is beautiful. You can see the Baroque decadence showcasing many different types of marble throughout.
  • The building is architecturally beautiful but it is the garden behind the makes this wonderful. Amazing at any time of the year but I love it when the Spring flowers are blooming. They have made the Sound of Music into an industry here. A number of scenes were filmed here.
