“Beautiful and a Must See for "The Sound of Music" Fans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

These gardens gained great notoriety as one of the Salzburg sites where "The Sound of Music" was filmed, in particular, the song "Do Re Mi." It's not unusual to see people reenacting the song by skipping through the arbor, running around the Pegasus fountain, or hopping up the steps at one end of the gardens. (We did these things and saw others doing them, too. No apologies here.) The gardens are beautiful. If you are traveling with children, don't miss the dwarf statues or the playground that's next to the gardens.

“Very pretty garden.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

We went on a very rainy day, but I was determined to visit this place, since I am a Sound of Music fan! The gardens are very well maintained, and though not very big, are still very pretty. Worth a quick visit on your trip to Salzburg.

“Stunning gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

A very popular place to spend some time whilst visiting Salzburg.

We visited in Autumn and the gardens were truly beautiful.

We were able to see the sites in the gardens where the Sound of Music was filmed and there was plenty of great photo shots to be had.

There were a few buskers playing the day we were there and that added to the pleasant atmosphere of the gardens.

Well worth a visit. Simply beautiful

“Beautiful gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

The gardens are well-kept with a lot of flowers even in autumn. There is no fee and you can stay as long as you want. If you are into taking pictures, you will have amazing photos of the gardens with Hohensalzburg Fortress in the background. They are on the other side of the river from the old town. This side of Salzburg is also interesting with quaint little streets and the Kapucin hill. Do not miss it.
