Schloss Mirabell was built 1606 and redesigned a couple of times so that it now appears as a classicistic building from outside. It is office of the mayor/administration nowadays. Thus you can only visit the famous Baroque staircase and the Marble hall, and the latter only if it is not used for any meetings, wedding ceremonies and so. And that is almost NEVER as the guy at the entrance told me. Bad luck for me, btw, during the 4 days I was in Salzburg the Marble Hall was used for an important meeting.

Anyway, I enjoyed looking at the facades and the beautiful staircase.
