    Wonderful garden, which impresses with its variety of plants. Furthermore, fountains and marble balustrades with ornate vases decorate the garden.

    The Mirabell Gardens were redesigned under Archbishop Johann Ernst von Thun around 1690. The basic geometric shape characteristic of the Baroque can still be seen. Its optical orientation towards the cathedral and fortress gives the garden a grandiose effect - and at the same time incorporates it into the whole of the historical cityscape.

    It all began - as so often - with a love story. In 1606, Prince Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau decided to build a pleasure palace for his lover Salome Alt. Altenau Castle was built, at that time just outside the city gates, a love nest with a garden in honor of his beloved. Mirabell Palace got its current name under Wolf Dietrich's successor, Markus Sittikus von Hohenems. By the way, Mirabell is made up of mirabile, which can be translated as “admirable”, and bella for “beautiful”. The palace and Mirabell Gardens were only incorporated into the city fortifications under Archbishop Paris Lodron in the middle of the 17th century. At that time the garden was laid out in the early Baroque style, enclosed by a wall, inside of which kitchen beds could be found as well as tree and flower quarters as well as a bitter orange and fig house. The flower-rich gem was released for public use and thus accessible to everyone by Emperor Franz Joseph in 1854. Today the entire complex is a listed building and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Whether to soak up the sun during the lunch break, to end the day relaxed in nature or just to sit comfortably on one of the benches and admire the beauty around you: the Mirabell Garden in the heart of Salzburg's old town offers the full feel-good program. And that for free.

    The Mirabell Gardens are the gardens of the Mirabell Palace in the city of Salzburg in Austria, in the right old town. Because of its gardens, it is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the city. Belong to him
    - the large and small parterre (small and large axis of the water parterre)
    - the rose garden (formerly large orangery)
    - the orangery (formerly small orangery)
    - the theater garden (Heckentheater) and the Bosquet
    - the dwarf garden
    - the bastion garden (water bastion)
    as well as some parts now installed. In the north, the Mirabell Gardens are now adjacent to the old fortifications of the spa gardens instead of the worn-out bulwark St. Vitalis.

    The Mirabell Gardens lie on a north/south axis that directs the view towards the cathedral and the fortress.
    From 1689 the castle garden was redesigned under Prince Archbishop Johann Ernst Thun according to plans by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach, and changed a second time around 1730 by Franz Anton Danreiter.
    Another redesign in the 19th century led to the demolition of various elements (e.g. the arcades towards Mirabellplatz, the "old" dwarf garden). The large parterre is the most original part of today's Mirabell Gardens.
