The itinerary - A Lartisien exclusive

Experience the trick fountains and the palace

About 400 years ago, Salzburg's Prince Archbishop Markus Sittikus built a facility at the gates of his residence city, which was intended solely for his guests’ entertainment. He had the garden around the pleasure palace filled with hidden grottos, spray nozzles and hydraulically driven figures for the pleasure of his guests. Most of these have been preserved to this day and can be discovered as part of an entertaining tour.
