Mirabell Palace and Gardens in Salzburg
An entrance to the Mirabell Gardens used in a scene from "The Sound of Music".
"Do-Re-Mi" steps from "The Sound of Music".
Pegagus Fountain next to the Mirabell Palace. This fountain was also used in a scene from the movie.
If you look closely, you can see the Hohensalzburg Fortress (upper left) in this photo. Another scene from the movie was filmed in this walkway.
The Mirabell Palace.
Hohensalzburg Fortress can be seen on the hill overlooking the city in this photo. We rode the Festungsbahn (funicular railway) up there later on in the day.
When our ship was docked in Passau, Germany, we decided to take a day trip to Salzburg, Austria because my daughter had never been there before. This was my second trip to this beautiful city. Our first stop was the Mirabell Palace and Gardens. If you have seen the movie "The Sound of Music", you might recognize the first first four photos as locations used in scenes from the film.
