Mirabell Gardens in Salzburg - the Tulips' season

Mirabell Gardens is a gateway to Salzburg, providing stunning views of the Hohensalzburg Fortress and the Cathedral's domes. It is an excellent starting point for anyone who wishes to explore the city and learn about its rich history as the capital of an independent state – the Principality of Salzburg.

The Altenau Palace's first garden was established in 1600. In 1700, the Mirabell garden underwent a redesign and acquired its present appearance, which includes marble sculptures, vases, and balustrades. The park has managed to maintain its original appearance with the help of 18th-century engravings that have preserved the look of the flower patterns, alleys, and fountains.

The Mirabell Gardens is home to one hundred thousand flowers that bloom all year round, with violets and pansies blooming even in winter. The garden season starts in March after thaws and fences installed in autumn are removed from the park. During this time, gardeners trim the linden trees' branches and replace violets that did not survive the winter. The most colorful time in the park is when daffodils, forget-me-nots, wisteria, and tulips bloom at the beginning of May.

The types of tulips change here every year and can be found in such varieties as Rembrandt, Curly Sue, Monte Carlo, White Prince, Foxtrot, Zurel, and Green Wave (parrot tulip). Although Salzburg's Mirabell Gardens may not compete with Dutch flower parks in terms of scale and number of species, it has a charm that cannot be put into words - it must be seen!
