Schloss Hellbrunn was the summer palace of the prince archbishop of Salzburg. Markus Sitticus built this palace, and he liked to play tricks on his guests. Some of those tricks happen here, at the outdoor dining table.Water shoots out from unsuspecting holes everywhere, as you can see. But the prince archbishop wouldn’t want to get wet, so his seat at the head of the table was safe from all shoots of water. I’ve sat in that spot and can vouch for its dryness. The others definitely aren’t. There are a variety of other tricks inside and outside of the palace, many designed to drench visitors.
