Places Near Salzburg

Lustschloss Hellbrunn (Hellbrunn Castle) a very popular sit is only 4 kms away, south of Salzburg, The castle built in the 17th Century, has some fine decorations in its rooms. In the gardens is the gazebo of Sound of Music fame, where the song "I am sixteen going on seventeen" was filmed. While walking through the gardens, don’t be surprised if a squirt of water from a hidden water jet drenches you! The Wasserspiele was built by the quirky Archbishop Markus who got his thrills by seeing his guests literally jump out of their skins when suddenly sprayed by a jet of water. Further south is the Untersberg peak . If you are feeling energetic, take a hike through flower meadows and breathe in the fresh alpine air. Visit the Elshohlen (ice-caves) an hour and a half climb from the peak. For the not so adventurous, a cable car takes you over Salzburg to the summit.
