Hellbrunn Palace near Salzburg

One of the city's biggest and most beautiful facilities

Hellbrunn Palace and the eponymous, huge park are located in the south of Salzburg and are easily accessible by car or bus. Although, walking or cycling through Hellbrunn Alley is definitely worth the effort; after all it is one of the world's oldest, still intact alleys.

However you get to Hellbrunn: take your time. There is a lot to see. Salzburg's borough Hellbrunn offers not only the palace, but also its water games, flower garden, huge park and last but not least Hellbrunn Zoo at the foot of the mountain.

Immer einen Besuch wert - Schloss Hellbrunn

Salzburg maison the plaisance

Prince-archbishop Markus Sittikus had only been in office for a couple of months when he commissioned the construction of this summer residence. His passion for Italian culture can still be seen at Hellbrunn Palace and the whole area.

He wanted to create a place like no one had ever seen before, with this palace, the huge park and of course the water games.

Water games – perfect for hot days

Enter the prince-archbishop's "playground” and get ready for a surprise. For almost 400 years various mechanisms have been initiated purely by hydraulics. During a tour through the area you can be sure that you won't stay dry; an absolute highlight in Salzburg and especially recommendable on hot days.

When you visit the palace, why not also walk over to Hellbrunn Zoo or take a stroll through the park all the way up Hellbrunn mountain. It's not too high but offers gorgeous views over the alpine mountain range.
