Trick Fountains are amusing !

Kids and youngsters would love this place. We were extremely amused by the Trick Fountains. One can avoid the place, but definitely must visit the fountains.

Hellbrunn has a very interesting and quirky history. Located a short drive from Salzburg this palace is situated on beautiful park like grounds. There are numerous water features and the palace itself is small but well worth visiting as the history is unique. Take the time to have a look, you will need about 2 to 3 hours.

Visited in the afternoon on a Friday - was shockingly empty. Take the tour of the Trick Water Gardens, but be prepared to get wet. Definitely have an ice cream on a hot day.

The audio tour is great and you get a whole lot of fun for the entrance fee plus a self guided audio tour of the castle itself. The fountain tour will take around 50 minutes and is best on a warm sunny day as you will most likely get wet! The grounds are huge so allow plenty of time to... More

I had been to Hellbrunn 30+ years ago and wanted to go back with family. It was fun as I remembered. Although the weather was not the best (rainy/cold the day we went), it was still a fun outing, and our guide was quite considerate in ensuring we didn't get wet, and made sure that our technical equipment was protected....

This is the Hellbrunn weekend villa.It was built for Markus Sittikus by his court architect Santino Solaris between 1612 and 1619. The highlight of a visit to Hellbrunn is its park and the gazebo used during the filming of the Sound of Music. It was moved here from its location at a local hotel. This is where they sang "...

This was my fav Christmas market in salzburg. It is a stunning place when decorated for Christmas. I loved the krampus exhibit and the manger area with livestock is fun for kids.

Tranquil lakes, flowerbeds, stone carved unicorns, notorious Austrian tidiness, huge groups of tourists and above all, the gazebo from "The Sound of Music", in which a teenage daughter was dating a young Nazi-freshman.
