Schloss Hellbrunn

Interesting
This former summer residence was built from 1613 to 1616, in an Italian villa style, by the Archbishop of Salzburg, Mark Sittich. The virtuosity of the trompe-l'oeils in the Ballroom and the Octagon, as well as the water features in the gardens might prove more of a surprise than you are expecting. From caves to fountains, you head to the Mechanical Theatre, where 113 figures come to life animated by water power. There is a zoo with vast enclosures just next-door.
