Most of you know that Salzburg is the town where the great composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born. Do you remember for whom he wrote many of his brilliant compositions? Yes, for the clergy, for the Archbishop of Salzburg.

Now fast forward to 400 years ago, when the Hellbrunn Palace and the gardens around it were created, which served as a summer recreation residence and hunting grounds for the Salzburg archbishops. They had no shortage of love for social pleasures. In the vicinity of the Hellbrunn hill gush from the ground springs from the deep glaciers of the Untersberg Mountain. Italian architect Santino Solari used them to create outlandish fountains for his employer, Archbishop Marcus Sitticus.

When the archbishop came to the Hellbrunn gardens on summer days, surrounded by his guests, he arranged a princely hunt, which ended with a magnificent feast on the outdoor terrace in front of the palace. Wine and other drinks flowed like a river. Getting drunk and gorging themselves to the point of failure, the guests forgot themselves and began to behave too freely. This is what Marcus Sitticus was waiting for. At his signal, the water began to shoot from unexpected places, making the noble audience laugh and sober up.

Would you like to become an Archbishop's guest, and experience his sense of humor? If so, I invite you to take a tour of Hellbrunn Palace. I will tell you a lot of interesting facts about the history of the palace, and also draw your attention to those details that you will not notice yourself. I will be glad to offer you an interesting program, which may include not only a walk along the alley of fountains but also many other less explored corners of the garden.

It is important to understand that these are fountains, so it will be damp. And since they are tricky, it will be damp for you! So there should be no offenses here.

The duration of the tour, depending on the program, is from 1.5 to 3 hours. I recommend combining the tour with a visit to HANGAR-7 or a full-day combinative city tour by car and walking.
