Entry to these magical fountain is by guided tour only. The 'Salzburg Card' includes this. The tour and the fountains in themselves are nothing great but overall the experience is a good one with a few surprises, so be prepared to get a little wet...More

I remember going on this tour 30 years ago. It was fun then and fun now. The trick fountains are hidden in many places and it make the tour very interesting.

Wasserspiele Hellbrunn is a nice experience of beauty and fun. The guide is really friendly and the fountains are beautiful. Better to do it in a sunny day as you'll get wet with the water tricks ;)

Hellbrunn Palace is famous with its trick fountains. Upon arrival, buy your ticket 12.50 euros (included palace with audio guide and guided English/German fountains tour) and note your tour time. Tours generally go on the half-hour. The 40-minutes tour takes your laughing and scrambling through...More

You remember the famous scene from The Sound of Music when Leisl and Rolf sang "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" and jumped from bench to bench in the gazebo. This palace has the gazebo on its grounds, and, for me, was worth visiting just for that!...More
