If you're a die hard fan of the Sound of Music movie, you will definitely love being in Salzburg as you’ll be able to visit some of the film locations and re-live the magic of the movie. One of the beautiful sights I've come across is the Mirabell Gardens. With a handful of history, the place is absolutely enchanting and intriguing with lots of photo ops.
The above shot is Grand Parterre with a view of Hohensalzburg Fortress in the distance. Some of the famous scenes from the movie were recorded here.
This is where Maria and the Von Trapp children dance around the famous Pegasus fountain in the garden singing 'Do-Re-Mi'.
Almost every corner I turn to, there's an inner and outer marble balustrade topped with elaborately decorated marble vases surrounding the area.
Some of the Italian sculptures by Ottavio Mosto, can be seen throughout the garden as well.
The hedge arcade along the west side of the Grand Parterre is perhaps the most famous feature of the park. This is where Maria and the Von Trapp kids run through the arcade during the concluding moments of the song.
One of the outstrecthed hands of two Borghesian fencers at the south entrance and it was featured in the movie as well.
