We added this sightseeing stop in only because we were nearby and had some time. Turns out it was very worth it - mostly to experience the trick fountains. The fountain tour is a separate ticket that meets outside the main castle and tours the...More

The Trick Fountains did not disappoint! And our guide had a great sense of humor. Since it was raining outside it didn't matter too much that we got a little wet from the show. There's a nice museum display inside the castle as well. We...More

This Castle is outside of Salzburg. It can be reached by bus (line 170) but we chose to go by car as they have a large parking area which is pretty cheap. The grounds and the gardens are really beautiful and carefully maintained, the staff...More

This gem of a palace was built way back in 1613, over a short six-year program, at the behest of the Prince-Archbishop Markus Sittikus von Hohenaus, a hedonistic noble of Salzburg, to entertain his wide circle of friends and acolytes. The attractive structure was never...More

I visited Hellbrunn in 1990 as a teenager, and I remember loving it. So when my husband and I visited Salzburg, I knew we had to go. The trick fountains were so much fun and definitely tricky! I won't spoil the fun, but do be...More

In perspective, we joined a group of about 20 to 25 high school students and the tour guide continually played tricks on them with the water which really made the experience much better. Interesting place with trick water fountains, most hidden, and a miniature town...More

A lovely way to spend an afternoon. I particularly enjoyed the tour of the outside (so fun!), the history presented inside the palace, and if you enjoy Art History, you will enjoy the frescoes (towards the back of the palace) that are reminiscent of the...More

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

I'd plan for 30-40 minutes for the actual tour, but you will probably want to walk the grounds a little as well as they are quite lovely. I would highly recommend going at dusk - lit up the fountains and statuary are really... More
