Brine and Water - Salt Mine & Hellbrunn Trick Fountains

After the exciting journey into the Dürrnberg salt mountain it is now back to daylight and into the world of water and pleasure. With these water features you never know what to expect. Only one thing is certain: it's fun.
Jeaux d'eaux, grottoes, fountains - Archbishop Markus Sittikus used to astonish, entertain and poke fun at his guests in Hellbrunn Castle with trick fountains. Hellbrunn is like a chamber of wonders, with its surprises and fascinating contrasts, an exciting excursion into the past. Incidentally, Markus Sittikus financed the construction of Hellbrunn Castle through the immense profits of the salt trade.
