Hellbrunn Palace

Hellbrunn Palace is an ornate and fairytale-like palace that was built in the early 17th century with gardens that contain water machines and fountains, grottos and much more. The castle is only 5 km from the city, but it is a healing escape from the hustle and bustle of Salzburg.
