The grounds are amazing. What a wonderful way to spend some "down time". We spent nearly three hours here and that really wasn't enough time.

Mirabell Palace and Gardens was truly magical! Hopping down the steps, posing with unicorn statues, walking through beautiful flowers arranged in great patterns to get to fountains and a large tunnel with plants covering it! MUST-SEE if you are in Austria!
