Mirabell Garden (Mirabellgarten)
Whatever the season, visitors will delight in taking a walk through the magical gardens surrounding Schloss Mirabell , a fantastic pleasure palace erected by Archbishop Wolf Dietrich in 1606. The park contains a stunning array of fountains, statues, balustrades and trees, and presents a kaleidoscope of colours which will take the breath away. Everyday life seems to melt into the background when faced with mythical figures like Helena and Paris, Hercules and Antaeus, Persephone and Hades, Kronos and Bacchus. Admission is free.
