Top Sightseeing – The Hellbrunn Palace and Trick Fountains
400 years Hellbrunn – Salzburg’s prince-archbishop Markus Sittikus commissioned the building of a summer residence at the foot of Hellbrunn mountain, a location already abundant in naturally flowing waters. Based on Italian models and in a relatively short period of time, an architectural jewel had been created, still reckoned amongst the most magnificent Renaissance buildings north of the Alps.
The pleasure palace in Hellbrunn was designed to serve one specific purpose: provide amusement, distraction and entertainment.
It is a fantastic palace that offers a lot in summer and winter time.

Although water will squirt out of the jets and fountains, don’t worry
you may get a little wet but not soaked. It is great fun – amusement park since 1615.The trick fountains allow you to experience, in virtually unchanged form, what brought so much pleasure for the archbishops almost 400 years ago: mysterious, mystical grottos, water-driven mechanical figures and mischievous jets of water spurting out from every nook and cranny.
In the park you will see great sculpture and natural biotopes. Likewise, You are certain to be delightfully surprised!
