Mirabell Palace and Gardens

A Baroque pleasure garden in the city centre, right next to the Hôtel Bristol Salzburg

The picturesque Mirabell Palace Gardens are directly adjacent to the 5-star Hôtel Bristol Salzburg. The palace, built in 1606 by Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich, was lavishly rebuilt between 1721 and 1727 and combined into a self-contained complex. Various masters have given the palace its present appearance. Among its most special treasures are the Marble Hall - the Prince-Archbishop’s former banqueting hall, where Leopold Mozart and his children Wolfgang Amadeus and Nannerl are known to have performed - and the elaborately decorated staircase with balustrade and sculptures, among the most beautiful Baroque creations in Europe.

Mirabell Gardens

The picturesque Mirabell Gardens - a natural oasis in Salzburg’s city centre - are just a few steps from the Hôtel Bristol Salzburg. In addition to the typically Baroque geometric shape of the gardens and the colourful planting, the views of Salzburg Cathedral and Hohensalzburg Fortress are particularly impressive.

in the Mirabell Gardens

  • The Pegasus Fountain: sculpture of the horse, Pegasus, by Kaspar Gras dating from 1913.
  • The Grand Fountain: fountain pool with four groups of figures by Ottavio Mosto dating from 1690. They represent the 4 elements: fire, air, earth and water.
  • The Hedge Theatre: one of the oldest hedge theatres north of the Alps, it serves as a venue for folk-heritage events during the summer (in the western part of the garden).
  • The Dwarf Garden: in Europe’s oldest dwarf garden, 17 of the original 28 dwarfs made from white Untersberg marble can still be admired today.
  • The Rose Garden: the central eye-catcher directly in front of Mirabell Palace.
