The Garden Guide

Hellbrunner Allee, Salzburg

Hellbrunner Allee was built in the early 17th century (1613-15) by Prince Archbishop Markus Sittikus. It is one of the avenues belonging to Hellbrunn Garden and connects the Schloss witth the city of Salzburg. The avenue is 2 km in length and lined with ancient oaks and a series of other manor houses: Emslieb, Emsburg, Fronburg, Kayserhof, Rupertihof (“Gwandhaus”), Christianihof (Schloss Hernau) and Schloss Freisaal. By far the best way to travel from Salzburg to Hellbrunn is along the allee. You can walk or you can hire a bicycle near the railway station. The three allees and axes running from Hellbrunn are:

  • to the north, the Hellbrunner allee to Schloss  Freisaal, Salzburg castle and the city of Salzburg
  • to the north-east, the Castle axis  with the “Fürstenweg” (this is the oldest avenue axis in Central Europe)
  • to the south-east, the garden axis running across the river Salzach
