What, No Bedroom? Hellbrunn Palace, Salzburg

While we were in Salzburg in July 2015 we visited Hellbrunn Palace. This is an early Baroque villa built by the Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg, Markus Sittikus von Hohenems who had the palace built between 1613 and 1619. The grounds abound in trick water fountains but there are also interesting displays within the building. There are no bedrooms as the Prince-Archbishop visited the palace only during the day. He loved to catch his guests unawares with the water features. It was difficult to take adequate photos because of the lighting. I loved the old heater and took photos of many of these throughout our travels through France, Germany and Austria. In 2004, a 10 Euro collectors' coin was minted called the Castle of Hellbrunn coin.

Was he trying to funny or was he abusive?

Being a Prince-Archbishop I guess he thought he was being funny. I doubt anyone would have argued with him about it.

@celticeagle I guess they created their own amusements.

@judyev The Prince-Archbishop seems to have little to do other than build follies! Imagine building a house with nowhere to sleep!

He entertained a lot there but it does seem odd not to have a bedroom.

The palace had lovely big windows which let in lots of light but also made photographing the bits and pieces much more difficult.
