Train from Innsbruc to Salzburg takes approximately 2 hours. Salzburg is renowned for its baroque architecture and is one of the best-preserved city centers north of the Alps. Salzach river is the tributary of Inn and main river in Salzburg.

We visited Hellbrunn Palace & Trick Fountains. This was a pleasure palace for Salzburg prince – archbishops. Trick fountain is quite spectacular. Hellbrunn Mountain is a naturally abundant source of water, which inevitably became a central design feature of the palace grounds. The centerpiece is provided by Mannerist trick fountains that are absolutely unique. There was a mechanical few water-spewing stags and at the end it was crown dancing atop a water spout.

The fountains once used by Markus Sittikus to entertain his guests can still be visited today, every bit as fun now as they were back then. Mysterious grottos, water-powered figures and hidden water jets splash unsuspecting visitors ย on hot summer days.
