Mirabell Gardens

Salzburg, Austria

Fountain in the Mirabell Gardens of Salzburg, Austria.
Beautiful gardens and estate, best known for the filming of the movie, 'Sound of Music.'


"Mirabell Gardens were built near the Hohensalzburg Fortress and the Salzburger Dom cathedral.
The original gardens were re-modelled according to plans by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach under the reign of Prince Archbishop Johann Ernst Thun in 1689.
Franz Anton Danreiter altered them again in 1730, shaping what is now this Baroque Mirabell garden."

It reminds me of 'The Sound of Music' (my favourite film)
was that filmed in Saltzburg?
