Whether it’s the historical water jokes, mystical grottos, the Mechanical Theatre or the Royal Table – this archbishop's pleasure palace from the early 17th century still amazes visitors even today. Once upon a time, the mastermind Markus Sittikus relaxed here from the hard daily routine of governing. Follow his lead and enjoy this pleasure palace in fine detail with your own private tour through the magical trick fountains.
In front of and behind the curtains Discover the well-kept secrets of the trick fountains and take a look at the Prince Archbishop's many surprises
On this entertaining themed tour, we go in front of and behind the scenes of the trick fountains. With one of our expert guides you will also visit the lesser known corners of the complex and learn the secrets of the trick fountains.
Water ways The secrets of Hellbrunn complex are the springs, streams and ponds
It’s hard to believe that everything functions here just as it did 400 years ago. There is a crown floating in the air, a rotary organ plays Mozart and a cheeky scandalmonger sticks his tongue out at visitors. During this exciting themed tour, you will learn more about the fascinating technology behind the trick fountains. Where does the water come from? How do the mechanisms and automatons work?
On the trail of the gods Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of ancient goddesses and heroes
In the spirit of the times, Prince Archbishop Markus Sittikus was fascinated by the ancient world of legends. That's why today you meet gods, mythical creatures and heroes on every corner of Hellbrunn. On this fabulous themed tour you will learn more about the whimsical beings and their roles. Why does Eurydice sleep in the underworld? Why does Diana turn the curious youngster Aktaeon into a deer? And why does Apollo skin poor Satyr Marsyas?
