Nice to slow down and stroll through beautiful gardens.

Relax and just stroll through the gardens. On the other side of the river from Old Town. A delightful was to end our stay in Saltzburg.

Beautiful fountain and gardens. More flowers than you can imagine. This is (was), one of the filming sites in the "Sound of Music" movie. About a 10 minute walk from the train station down the main street, the gardens are through a walkway in the front building, which is well marked. Plan to spend about 1/2 hour here. The walk...

We enjoyed the gardens. Beautiful. Didn't have time for a palace tour, although we did see the Marble Hall when we went there for a concert. Easy walk across the pedestrian bridge from the old side of town.

Beautiful gardens and view of Salzburg. Also an added bonus with a playground down below and great "Sound of Music" movie scene locations.

If you've ever seen The Sound of Music, this is a must. This is where they shot the "Do, a deer..." ending. The gardens are breath-takingly pretty. And they're right in the heart of town -- so easy to get to you'll be amazed.

The Mirabell Gardens are a beautiful formal garden in the heart of Salzburg, many of the displays were still in flower even this late in the year. The central fountain is stunning.

On arrival in Salzburg, we met up with our private tour guide who spoke perfect English. A wonderful lady with great knowledge of the city. Mirabell palace was wonderful and of massive scale. The marble was exquisite and the whole building wonderfully maintained, especially as it continues to be used for weddings. However, dampener was to hear it was built... More

It's a nice garden, but not amazing for me. If you like roses, you'll like it here. There are a lot of tourists. Nice place to sit at night. Not good place to catch Pokemons, for Pokemon Go players.

The gardens are amazing, all the flowers are placed symmetrically so you could literally fold the park in two and all the garden patterns are identical. This park is significant in the Sound of Music mostly featuring in Do Re Mi. Look out for the fountain and the garden arch where kids run through!! Fun times and a lovely place... More

Large complex within central Salzburg. Easy walking distance. Gardens are magnificent, and the visit was worth it simply for the iconic "Sound of Music" Do Re Mi photo in front of the fountain, with the mountains as a backdrop. Unmissable.
