Hellbrunn Palace 3.7 rating


The Hellbrunn Palace is a Baroque villa with park built in 1613–'19 by Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg Markus Sittikus von Hohenems as a summer day residence. The 'pleasure palace' has magnificent ballrooms, and exhibits 'GrandDelight – The unexpected world of Markus Sittikus' dedicated to the prince who commissioned this beautiful complex. The surrounding park has landscaped gardens with elaborate jeux d'eau (watergames) or trick fountains in the Wasserspiele, set up variously as a dining area, grotto, and mechanical figures. The Stone Theatre on the grounds is one of the oldest open air stages in Europe. The Monatschlössl houses the ethnographical section of the Carolina Augusteum Museum of Salzburg, showcasing artifacts related to folklore, popular customs and traditional costumes. Another highlight of the site is the Sound of Music Pavilion, where Liesl and Franz meet for the first time in the movie. The Salzburg Zoo in the south-east corner of the lawns is a favorite with kids.

Guided tours of the trick fountains, palace with audio guide, and folklore museum cost € 12.50 for adults, € 8.00 for students, and € 5.50 for children aged 4-18 years. There are discounts for groups of 20+ and families. Tours last approximately 40 minutes each, and are available every half hour.
