Mirabell Palace Gardens

Local name: Schloss Mirabell und Mirabellgarten

Mirabell Palace with its adjacent gardens is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Currently, the building represents the Classicist style and houses the Registry Office. His richly decorated Marble Hall is considered to be an exceptionally beautiful wedding hall.

Baroque palace gardens are a picturesque place. There are a conservatory, a rose garden, fountains and numerous marble figures. Newlyweds often use this scenery to perform wedding photo sessions.

The palace was built in the early 17th century by Archbishop Wolf Dietrich Raitenau for his mistress, daughter of a Salzburg merchant, Salome Alt. The name "Mirabell Palace" was given to the building by Raitenau's successor, Mark Sittich von Hohenems. In the 18th century the palace was rebuilt in a very decorative Baroque style. After the fire in the first half of the nineteenth century, the palace was renovated, but in the classical style.
