I have been to this castle twice now and both of the times I had equal fun, thanks to the trick water fountains. The park around the caste is also really nice to spend some time. However, the highlight for me was the trick water...More

A nice sunny day was the perfect background for visiting the palace and the adjoining park. Of course, Hellbrunn is best known for the trick fountains (listed as a separate attraction on TripAdvisor), but the palace and the grounds have much to offer, too. The...More

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.

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
