Very relaxing with many people enjoying the surroundings. Many excellent statues and fountains. My pick is the abundance of flower gardens making a splendid attraction. You could spend a lot of time here relaxing in the shade. Very crowded probably because the festival is on. This one is definitely a must see attraction in Salzburg.

It was just like how we expected from the Sound of Music, the garden was full of summer blossom when we visited in the late afternoon and it's a surprise that it actually opened till late, and there was not too many visitors when we were there at 7pm. Really worth the visit!

If you want pictures with no-few people in them, go in the morning (anywhere between 7-9). It is quieter and is a great time for photo opps. I really loved how the gardens are open to the public and during some parts of the day, there are musicians playing. The gardens really put one in a great mood! I was... More

The gardens are indeed beautiful. They are not very large and therefore, on days in the summer, it is quickly busy. But since it is only a short walk from the old city over the bridge to the gardens I would definitely recommend it. Easily to do with little children.

Compact within easy walk if staying in the old town, a good display of flowers and well maintained in July. A must to see while in Salzburg.

My hotel recommended an early walk and they were right! By 10am the place was packed! At 9am it was quiet and beautiful. Well worth the stroll down the river.

On the last day of my visit to Salzburg I had a 10.30 am flight... More

This is a great place to stroll and take photos. The flowers are spectacular as is the layout of the gardens. We stayed at a nearby hotel so stopped in each day to take in the beauty. There are many places where the Sound of a Music was filmed so be prepared for throngs of people in these areas (back... More
