The tour is so much fun! The tour guide was entertaining (watch out for the trick fountains!) and interesting. The grounds are beautiful and, as an added bonus, the gazebo that was used in "The Sound of Music" is on the grounds. This is another...More

Good information on the history of this Palace and the culture that created the amusement. Really enjoyed the fountains...just tried to stay near the speaker (who always seemed to remain dry). One of our most memorable sites to visit.

This was the highlight of our trip to Salzburg. We weren’t sure what to expect but the Trick Fountain tour we have talked about for days after. It was spectacular and so glad we made the trip there.

Very impressed with the gardens and trick water features, which were very clever and more plentiful than expected. The your guide for the water features definitely enjoyed her job and did it well! Be ready to get a bit wet when you least expect it...More

Actually, there is a very good and reasonably priced restaurant on the grounds of Hellbrunn. Open for lunch but not breakfast that I know of.
