Hellbrunn Palace

Local name: Schloss Hellbrunn

Hellbrunn Palace is an early Baroque villa complex. Originally, the palace was the summer residence of the archbishops of Salzburg, and is now open to the public. Inside, you can see an exhibition dedicated to the history of the palace and to Archbishop Markus Sittikus von Hohenems. The palace's biggest attraction are the Mannerist gardens adjacent to it, known as "gardens of water pleasures," unique in the world. They can be visited with a guide.

The palace and gardens were built as the so-called "Palace of pleasures" on the initiative of the Archbishop of Salzburg Markus Sittikus von Hohenems. The design of the complex was made by architect Santiano Solari. The construction lasted from 1613 to 1619. An interesting fact is that the palace has no bedroom, because it was intended to be used only as a summer day residence. The palace is currently a museum, but you can also rent rooms for weddings and other events.
