Hellbrunn - Schlo? und Wasserspiele
Unfortunately we were so wet from the rain falling down on us that the surprises from the aquatic gardens did'nt bother us much.

The world-famous aquatic gardens. The palace building and the aquatic gardens have hardly changed in the almost 400 years since their construction. The spacious, over 60 hectares of park, is considered an exquisite example of garden architecture. And as you see it today is how the last prince-bishop of Salzburg had it laid out according to the exemplary design of an Italian pleasance.

Hellbrunn Palace has always been a place for entertainment, and a place for great celebrations, sumptuous spectacles, and a place for the exhibition of the unusual. Then as today.
Water is the central element at Hellbrunn. Numerous springs from the Hellbrunn Mountains feed the aquatic gardens and their mysterious grottoes, frivolous water-driven figures, and treacherous fountain jets. A constant change of light and shade, alarm and jollification, happiness and seriousness accompanies you on your walk through Hellbrunn.

Become acquainted with this magical place, and the chamber of wonders of Prince-Bishop Markus Sittikus (1574-1619). Follow the traces of the former rulers of Salzburg. From the foot of the Hohensalzburg Fortress, an avenue of around five kilometres leads directly to Hellbrunn Palace, built by Santino Solari between 1612 and 1615. And in the time of the prince-bishops, the shade-giving trees were much appreciated when they took a day excursion to the Renaissance palace with their guests and the entire court.
