These gardens are beautiful to explore especially if you're lucky enough to be in Salzburg on a sunny day. In Spring the gardens are in full bloom with tulips as far as the eye can see. There are also some statues you'll recognize from the Sound of Music!

Set aside some time to view all of Mirbell palace and gardens at a slow pace. Lots of tourist so be patient when taking photos. Sound of Music Fans will reconize many of the sites from Doe Rea Me

This small but gorgeous park and gardens is a wonderful place to sit and people watch and on a sunny day has colorful photo ops galore. The "palace" is government offices and can't be visited but the surrounding park is worth a visit.

We went on a cold, cloudy afternoon and the place really is as beautiful as the other posters have said. It's a nice break form the city centre which can get very crowded due to its small size.

The gardens were beautiful and the entrance, with it's overview of the gardens and the fortress, proved to be the perfect place for a family picture. This was a perfect spot to relax after a long day of walking.

What a beautiful place to walk about and explore. The architecture, the gardens and paths are just so amazing. The fountains and the details within the palace are so ornate and extraordinary! A must see if you're traveling to Salzburg!

Very elegant, well preserved and serene gardens within the city center. Of course whilst walking the gardens, one will definitely remember the sound of music :)
