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.
