Mirabell Castle and Garden, Salzburg: 149 reviews and 266 photos
This castle has an interesting history :
It was built in 1606 by Salzburg's Prince-Archibishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau for his mistress Salome Alt.
HE was a catholic archibishop and SHE was the daughter of a jewish merchant...
They had 10 children and even had something like an official wedding-ceremony in Salzburg ( and he told the pope in Rome, its all not true, and only bad propaganda by his enemies...)
He first called this castle and its great gardens " Altenau "
In 1612 the archibishop was set into prison inside his own castle of Hohensalzburg and his wife had to leave the castle
