Salzburg is abundant with fantastic sights but magic Mirabell Palace & Mirabell Garden surely rank among the city’s most splendid landmarks. This uniquely designed complex has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. And its unique, romantic character is not due to chance: the palace was built in the early 17th century under Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau for his mistress or secret wife (there is no clear evidence) Salome Alt. In the course of time, the complex was repeatedly extended by different sovereigns and owners. For the most part, the wonderful gardens hark back to the 18th century; the orangery was built during that period too.
No doubt: Mirabell Palace with its attached Mirabell Garden is obviously worth a visit at any time! In spring and summer, a tour of the fully blossoming Mirabell Garden is of course particularly delightful. But also in fall and winter, this place has a very special appeal. Those wanting to explore the entire complex should budget not less than several hours for visiting the interiors with the State Staircase, the Marble Hall, and the Palace Chapel – plus an extended stroll across the baroque gardens. And during Advent, there is hardly anything more amazing than a tour of the complex with a culinary break on the Christmas market near Mirabell Palace!
