Hellbrunn Palace Salzburg

This is the picture which was featured in their Salzburg guide which was taken by my sister sometime in March of 2001. We traveled to several places in Europe and Austria was part of our itinerary. We stayed in Vienna for a few days and took a train to Salzburg for a day trip. It was freezing cold but still tolerable enough for me to not wear my red woolen hat. The yellow baroque style building is part of the Hellbrunn castle. It was the summer vacation house of the Hapsburg family of Austria. A sprawling place with beautiful gardens, manicured lawns and its famous trick fountains which is only operational during summer. So we weren't able to see its magical tricks. I really cherish that European trip. And this picture brought back very fond memories of my travels. =)
