The Heckentheater (theatre of the hedge) is part of the Mirabellgarden and one of the oldest Heckentheater in the area. Every Friday evening in Summer at 18:30 the Heckentheater is filled by local music groups and traditional costume associations for the Brauchtumsnachmittag, an event where traditional music and customs are performed.
If the weather is not good enough to perform in outside, then the event is moved into the castle. The castle Mirabell and it’s wonderful garden was build in the 17th century by archbishop Wolf Dietrich of Raitenau. The garden was changed later on by the plans of Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach. Since then the garden and of course the castle are extremely popular attractions.
