A truly wonderful experience in Vienna, not to be missed attraction. Some areas need a ticket to be purchased, but the most beautiful " Rose Garden's ' are free for the public. It's a vast palace including the palace grounds, the fountains and the monuments...More

This was very different castle experience and tour, really enjoyed it! Been to many castles and the trick fountains are very cool and still operating after so many years. Go see the Sound of Music pavilion on the grounds (I'm a big SOM fan!)

You can go inside the castle which doesnt have a lot open to see. Then we took the guided tour of the fountains.The guides really get a kick out of this, because they are the ones controlling the fountains. You will get wet, not terribly...More

We stopped here quickly while on the Sound of Music tour to see the Sixteen Going on Seventeen pavilion. It was locked up so we could only take pictures from the outside so that was a little disappointing. But the gardens/park looked beautiful. Too bad...More

We visited here in a beautiful sunny day. The castle was very interesting and the audio guide was essential but it comes with the ticket. Tip: the ticket for the trick fountain gives you entry to the castle also although it only mentions the fountains....More

While the grounds and park are open to the public it’s worth it to go through the water park (at a price). The guided tour is interesting in that you learn the amazing things that the engineers of that day could do with water and...More

Most people will rightly enjoy the water garden with its tricks there is a good museum to visit which is well laid out and intersting about the innovator.

Hellbrun is well worth visiting, the trick fountains are a delight, but the guides can be mischievous at times when they turn on fountains that will spray guests (not soaking though). Inside the palace is also interesting but the trick fountains are the star attraction.

You can walk around the park and see the grounds but not the fountains. It's not very big but worth a quick look. If you do the fountains watch out for the nasty guide who likes to get your cameras wet and get you wet on a... More
