We stopped here on the way to Salzburg and sang a song from The Sound of Music in front of the gazebo that was used during the filming of the movie. Luscious gardens. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

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
