These gardens are a hidden gem and are the location for 6 scenes from the Sound of Music from the iconic song Do Rei Me. They look exactly the same from the film and you can take pictures to your heart content. You can also get the sound of music hop on hop off bus from just outside the gardens.... More

This park is very nice an I can highly recommend taking an ice-cream or a coffee-to-go from the shops nearby (Mirabellplatz or Kongresshaus) and relax a bit in this beautiful, well cared place. Maybe you'll find some places from Sound of Music, like the pegasus-fountain, the gnome garden or the labirinth with its hidden theater. The park is bigger than... More

Topiary shapes, pruned trees, statuary and spring bulbs make this a lovely Sunday walk about venue. Join the locals who take a Sunday stroll.

This palace and gardens are beautiful to see; but the most enjoyable visit should include an evening of Mozart inside the palace. The concerts are held in the actual room Mozart played in for Empress Maria Theresa, when he was a boy.

My Partner had been here before and seen the gardens in full bloom but we visited in the snow so the gardens were covered over. He guarantees it's worth a visit when the gardens are at their best. To be honest the building in its self isn't that remarkable - looks like much of it is now being used as... More

While traveling during the off season has many benefits, gardens in bloom are one thing that you miss. I'm sure it's stunning in the warmer months. We weren't able to go into the palace but we did stroll through the gardens on our way to the old town. It's quite easy to visualize scenes from the Sound of Music.

I like the design of this palace and the great garden. This place is popular with the fans of the movie named Sound of Music. When you come here, there is high rate of chance you can hear the visitors sing the sound track of this movie.
