In 1606, Prince Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau had a palace called Altenau, built in a beautiful park for his great love Salome Alt, who bore him fifteen children, of whom ten survived. After the death of Wolf Dietrich the palace was given its current name (Mirabell Palace) by Wolf Dietrich’s successor, Markus Sittikus.
The Marble Hall, once the ceremonial hall of the prince archbishops, is now one of the most beautiful wedding halls in the world. Leopold Mozart and his children Wolfgang and Nannerl performed here.
Since then thousands of bridal couples from around the world have enjoyed this romantic destination for their wedding ceremony. The city of Salzburg and the Marble Hall combine history and culture with the wonderful Salzburg cityscape.
The Marble Hall, the baroque staircase, the Mirabell Gardens, the Pegasus Fountain and Hohensalzburg Fortress will be the perfect back drop for your wedding pictures. The Marble Hall in Mozart’s city, offering place for appr. 125 guests, could be also the perfect location for your very special day!
