Hellbrunn Palace & Trick Fountains

When Salzburg’s Prince-Archbishop Markus Sittikus commissioned the architect Santino Solari to build his pleasure palace, it was clear that it was to be a place of pleasures and recreation such as the world had never before seen. Thus, in a record-breakingly short construction period (1612-1615), a renaissance palace was built, which – with its magnificent gardens, grottos, and trick fountains – cast its spell not only over the Prince-Archbishop and his guests; for more than 400 years, Hellbrunn Palace has enchanted and amazed its visitors with its trick fountains

Residenzplatz Square & Residence Fountain

Five squares were built under Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau: Residence Square with its richly decorated baroque fountain is probably the largest and most beautiful square. Fifty-five medieval buildings were torn down to make room for the square. Residence Square was designed according to the Mannerist plans of the Italian architect, Vincenzo Scamozzi. Residence Fountain is considered to be the most beautiful fountain in the city of Salzburg and certainly deserves a closer look: four snorting horses seem to spring forth from the spouting rock
