Mirabell Palace and Gardens @ Salzburg, Austria

Mirabell Palace is centrally located so one can actually visit while going around the city and if you are looking to take a break for an hour. The garden is beautiful with a huge variety of flowers and is easily accessible using public transport. Located very close to Mozart House. You can sit and relax amidst lovely surroundings. The palace with its gardens is a listed cultural heritage monument and part of the Historic Centre of the City of Salzburg UNESCO World Heritage Site. This palace is popular partly due to several scenes from The Sound of Music were recorded here. Maria and the children sing 'Do-Re-Mi' while dancing around the horse fountain and using the steps as a musical scale.

Lucky to come during summer with clear skies. At the end of the Gardens you can see Hohensalzburg Fortress on top of the hill.

Lovely resting area from sun.

Garden with fairy horse fountain.

Very hot weather selfie.
