These fountains make you wet. You will never know when it will strike. Everyone will enjoy this. Entry and guided tour are included in the Salzburg card.

This sight is easy and cheap to access by using public transportation (bus no.25 from the city center / railway station). Totally worth of visiting. The garden is amazing and the castles are beautiful. The cute gazebo from Sound of Music is located here as...More

The highlight of a visit to Hellbrunn Castle has to be the guided tour around the Trick Fountains - hence the title of my review. Situated a short distance outside Salzburg, the castle is set in beautiful, large grounds. There is not too much to...More

Very enjoyable day out in the country, only about 6km out of the city - we drove there - plenty free parking. Fantastic grounds with trees and gardens. We also visited the castle interior which was very interesting - that visit is in a package...More

The castle ground is huge but there's no clear signage leading to the castle from the car park. We had already visited quite a few castles before arriving in Salzburg so our main focus was the trick fountain. It is definitely worth a visit and...More

Another must see when in Salzburg. I am an avid gardener and just loved seeing all the gardens at these castles as well as enjoying the history of the places.

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
Does the staff care at all about people getting soaked in winter as there are no comments from the attraction themselves? Having looked at the reviews looks like there is one guide who loves soaking people and has done for years. Beware visitors! About time there was some warning for unsuspecting visitors!

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
