Even on a rainy day, walking through the gardens of Hellbrunn is a magical experience.
It is such a special place for me as I walked there many times with my little ones when I still lived in Salzburg.
Hellbrunn, a popular spot for outings from Salzburg, this palace dates from the early 17th century and was built as a hunting lodge and summer residence for Prince-Archbishop Markus Sittikus.
The palace gardens, one of the oldest baroque formal gardens in all Europe, are known for their trick fountains. As you walk through, take care — you might be showered from a surprise source, such as a set of antlers. Set to organ music, some 265 figures in a mechanical theater are set in motion hydraulically.
