Photographer's Note

This is a view of the Mirabelle palace with the walkway leading the eye to the "Do-Re-Me" steps from the "Sound of Music".
This Baroque masterpiece was initially built as “Schloß Altenau” under the reign of Prince Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau in 1606. It was a present for his concubine Salome Alt and most famous for its splendid gardens.
The baroque Mirabell Gardens were designed by the architect, Fischer von Erlach.. They are filled with statues and reflecting pools. Julie Andrews and her seven charges showed off their singing voices in The Sound of Music in these gardens.
