Schloss Mirabell Palace in Salzburg

Schloss Mirabell Palace is mostly known for its extensive Baroque parks and garden. This is the main attraction of Mirabell, indeed, since the palace itself was re-furbished in neo-Classical style in the 18th century. Some of the Baroque interiors have survived, though, and were recently refurbished: The chapel, the famous marble staircase by the Baroque sculptor Donner, the large marble hall. The latter one serves as a highly popular venue for weddings and for concerts - mostly Mozart, enjoyed mostly by tourists. Rather over-priced - for cheaper concert options, see the program of the nearby Mozarteum Art and Music University or the Landestheater theatre.
