Mirabell Gardens - Worth The Time
We were three blocks from Mirabell Gardens and walked by them a half a dozen times without realizing what it was. On our last day, we discovered them about 20 minutes before our bus was to leave for a tour we took to Berchdesgaden. We only got to spend about 10 minutes in the Gardens, and it was raining, but it was still beautiful.

visit the Untersburg. It is located just outside of Salzburg aside the small town of St. Leonhard. You can take a lift up top or you can hike (approx. 6 hours). From the top you get a beautiful view of Salzburg and the surrounding villages. Salzburg at night. It looks so beautiful with the Salzach River and the buildings lit up.

see the Mozartplatz (Mozart Square). The square is dominated by the statue of Mozart by Ludwig Schwanthaler, ceremoniously unveiled on September 5, 1842 in the presence of Mozart's sons. Mozart's widow, Constanze von Nissen, did not live to see the unveiling. She died on March 6th of the same year in the house at Mozartplatz 8. A plaque was placed on the house in her memory.
Schloß Hellbrunn and the water gardens
Schloß Hellbrunn is an absolute MUST !
It is about 6 Km south of the City centre of Salzburg.
The the local bus in order to get there, or go with your own car - they have a big parking directely at Schloss Hellbrunn.
. Visit the famous water-gardens - a unique garden with hidden fountains at many places - a good chance to refresh on a hot summer-day...
BUT when you stay with the guide, you may see, when-ever he turns on the water at hidden places.
Have a short break from sightseeing and watch the chess players next to the cathedral! Or play yourself! This chess board is to find on Kapitelplatz square. I didn't watch for long (had to see some more churches, lol).
