Visit the Castle for the Trick Fountains!

If visiting in Summer, check out the Trick Fountains at Hellbrunn. They're fun for all ages, and the surprise splashes of water will be a refresher in the summer heat.

This is such a pretty Weinachts market. Beautiful main square with a lovely, friendly, village-like atmosphere compared to the big market in town.

You can get the bus out from the city centre - think it's no 2 bus, Hellbrunn is announced as a stop and the house is a very short walk from the bus stop. The house is good The pavilion from Sound of Music is here - sing "I am 16 going on 17" whilst dancing around the pavilion Nice... More

The gazebo from the Sound of Music is beautiful and well maintained. The Christmas Market is nestled in the area and the trees, decorations, antler decor puts you in the Yuletide mood. Plus, everyone is very friendly. Definitely worth going.

Schloss Hellbrunn, with its trick water fountains and beautiful grounds is always fun. The grounds provide a safe haven where the gazebo from the movie Sound of Music is conserved and protected and still a very popular destination. Your ticket includes a guided tour of the trick water fountains. Watch out, because you may get wet. The tour guide tells... More
