Mirabell Palace, Salzburg

Austria 5020
Tel: 43 66280 722334's insider take:

Some of the grandest mayoral offices in Europe are housed in this beautiful palace, built in 1606 and remodeled by famous Baroque architect Lukas von Hildebrandt in the 1720s. His putti-bedecked grand stairway and the Marble Hall (where, as a boy, Mozart performed with his father and sister) are breathtaking. And the second most famous Sound of Music number was shot in the gardens, so sing a round of "Do-Re-Mi" for luck.

Open daily 8 am to 10 pm.
