Salzburg: Palace Concert at the Marble Hall of Mirabell Palace
As a conductor and violinist I expected a concert which was well played but nothing special but I was delighted by outstanding playing in authentic baroque/classical style. Best concert this year.

Salzburg: Palace Concert at the Marble Hall of Mirabell Palace
This was a classical concert with selections from multiple composers. The performers included a trio with a piano, a clarinet, and a cello. They were excellent musicians and the music was beautiful. The venue was amazing in it's decoration. We had a wonderful time.

Salzburg: Palace Concert at the Marble Hall of Mirabell Palace
Having two degrees in music and a professional classical musician myself, I am no stranger to evaluating concerts. These musicians performed an outstanding concert at Mirabell. Their depth if musicianship belies their chronological age. Every nuance was felt by both the performers and the audience. Their technical skills match their musicianship. You will NOT be disappointed if you attend their performance!!

When to Get There

Mirabell Palace and the Mirabell Garden are open daily year-round, but the gardens are at their most impressive during spring and summer, when the flowers are in full bloom. During peak summer months, an early morning visit is best to avoid the crowds. In the winter, the Dwarf Garden and Hedge Theater are closed.

Exploring the Mirabell Gardens

Originally designed by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach in the 17th century, the Mirabell Garden is among the most impressive baroque gardens in Europe. The grand centerpiece is the Pegasus Fountain, around which the Von Trapp children danced during their rendition of “Do-Re-Mi” inThe Sound of Music. Other highlights include the Rose Garden, the Grand Fountain, the Hedge Theater, and the unique Dwarf Garden filled with knee-high marble garden gnomes.
