We've seen many schloss in Germany and Austria, but only Hellbrunn has the wonderful trick fountains. We visited on a rainy day in July, and our guide explained that she could not operate some of the water fountain due to weather. Nevertheless, we really enjoyed...More

A winter wonderland with the festive Advent market and the giant Advent calendar. The grounds are beautiful and are festively lite at night with thousands of tiny white lights and red Christmas baubles. Worth a 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
