Mirabell Castle and Garden, Salzburg: 149 reviews and 269 photos
The 1818 fire destroyed several ceiling frescoes by Rottmayer, but left relatively unscathed the beautiful Marble Hall (Marmorsaal) today used as a wedding hall often called the most beautiful in Austria and up to 300 Mozart concerts a year, some designed for tourists and others featuring the most highly acclaimed musicians in Europe. During the 17th C, it was the ceremonial hall and main dining room of the prince archbishops, and among others Leopold Mozart and his gifted family performed here for state dinners and ceremonies. The Marble Hall is a most striking room - the name is drawn from the ornate patterned tan, red, black, and white marble floor (Image 4). The walls are bright white covered with delicate gold appliques. Crystal chandeliers and extensive windows bathe the room in light. With the Angel Staircase, the Marble Hall make a stunning celebration of Baroque excess, well worth visiting.
