The Zwerglgarten, “Dwarf Garden”, in Salzburg’s Mirabell Gardens was introduced by Prince Archbishop Franz Anton Harrach in the early eighteenth century. Many of these characters were modelled on dwarves who lived in the court and served as entertainers to the archbishop.
Years later, they were removed and auctioned off, but have since been rescued and cleaned. They now stand in a circle in the gardens.
