If you’re visiting Salzburg, don’t miss out on the chance to visit Hellbrunn Palace & Trick Fountains. The massive palace was built by Prince-Archbishop Markus Sittikus von Hohenems in 1613-19.
Situated in the South of Salzburg, this spectacular palace was only meant for use as a day residence in summer, as the Archbishop usually returned to Salzburg in the evening. The permanent interactive exhibition “GrandDelight – The unexpected world of Markus Sittikus” depicts numerous aspects of the castle and its history, which one can enjoy through an audio guide. One of the major attractions of this Palace is Trick Fountains, which consist of several water automats, grottos, and fountains. The main objective of Sittikus was to entertain his guests through these Fountains. One can enjoy the Fountains thoroughly with the help of an audio guide. I used a ‘Hop-On, Hop-Off’ bus from the city’s downtown to reach this place.
