Traveling through Europe I am always amazed at the abundance of spectacular gardens there are to wander. They are a great place to rest for a bit or just wander aimlessly admiring the beautiful flowers and plants.
It is hard to find a garden that can beat Mirabell Gardens in Salzburg.
This beautiful and peaceful oasis is tucked between Mirabell Palace and Mozarteum University and is home to beautiful flower beds, hedges, fountains and statues that are sprinkled throughout the garden. The aisles and arbors are great for strolling or finding a bit respite from the sun!
Easily accessible from the Altstadt, Mirabell Gardens offers great views of Hohensalzburg Fortress off in the distance.
And for you Sound of Music fans, yes this is also a spot where Maria and the children frolicked and sang! The afternoon I was wandering Mirabell, I was lucky to run into a local youth band playing. Take a listen to this short video – they were actually very good!
