For sure, the most important attraction in Anif is the Hellbrunn Gardens. Hardly any visitor to Salzburg misses this highlight. You can easily spend a whole day here, too. There’s also the Zoo at and around the Hellbrunn Mountain with it’s over 800 animal inhabitants. The Hellbrunn Pleasure Palace was built in 1615 on behalf of Archbishop Markus Sittikus and is open to visitors. Not to mention the water games that deliver refreshing fun, cooling off in the summer months. On top of that, there are the parks themselves with their ponds, statues, the Monatsschlössl and the imposing stone theatre. The latter is a hit for children to climb over and play hide and seek. The huge playground area and the Kneipp bath are just as popular.
For sporting action, there is the climbing park which is, after all, the highest rope garden in Salzburg. Across more than 110 varied stations, at different levels of difficulty, you can traverse from platform to platform. Smaller visitors can test their climbing skills in the lower rope garden.
After getting sweaty climbing, it’s time to cool down, chill out and relax in the forest spa, above whose premises the climbing garden is laid-out.
At the Forest Sounds event, from mid-November to 26. December, the forest area is transformed into a quaint and atmospheric Christmas wonder-world.
Around this time, also the Anifer Krampusses make their mischief. Particularly impressive is the atmospheric spectacle at the annual Hayloft Party in the Friesacher Hotel & Restaurant hayloft.
