We took the bus, easy to get there and buses were very frequent, clean and inexpensive. Great audio tour and the water features were wonderful to watch. We got there at 10.30am and it wasn't too busy. If you want to get soaked you can, but for most you get a tiny spray of water on you. Took advantage of it being such a nice day to wander around the gardens and to view the pavilion from The Sound of Music and had a cooling drink in the cafe. We didn't bother going into the Schloss as our main purpose of visiting was to view the water features. I would strongly recommend.

I'd grown up hearing about this place from my mom and her siblings' memories from the 1970's, and it lived up to the hype. My husband and I visited early May, so it wasn't very crowded which was lovely... And also meant that we got sprayed VERY often as the sole targets in most of the areas! Those cheeky fountain operators are so fun! With it being early May our weather was slightly cooler, and by the end of our tour it was drizzling, but that didn't detract from our experience. The audio guide was helpful, especially as the tour guide with our group only presented in German. However, we found that we tended to be behind the group if we relied on the audio guide too much, so I ended up preferring to just go without the audio guide when we were with the group.

The schloss is lovely on the outside, but don't feel like you are missing too much if you skip the tour. The history of the man who built and owned the schloss is very speculative and the artifacts generic.

We took the bus from Marienplatz to get to Hellbrunn, which was only a bit of a headache coming back as our international phone data was not working for us to check what time the return bus would arrive at the Hellbrunn stop. Be better informed of the bus timetables than we were and you'll be fine.

These trick fountains are a lot of fun to experience, and it is remarkable how skilled the makers of these were 400 years ago. The audio guide was very good

These trick fountains are at Schloss Hellbrunn. They quite quirky and probably a lot of fun on hot day if you have kids. A curiosity. Worth seeing.

They sell separate timed tickets for the fountains.

A unique attraction. Comes with a recorded commentary at a language familiar to you.

I have never come across any attraction of this nature before.

Perfect place to visit on a hot day, but beware no one is safe from getting sprayed with water. Kids loved it and were soaking wet by the end.

Be aware that you buy a ticket which has a set time to start the tour of the trick fountains. Our ticket was for around 30 minutes after we arrived on a busy day so I suspect this isn't an issue but book online for a specific time if you don't want to wait.

I dislike the fact that they try to take a photo to sell to you. These are all printed whether you buy it or not. Not very environmentally friendly.

There is a also a big park with a small children's paddling pool so bring swimming costumes for kids on a hot day. Playground too was good but in direct sunshine.

Parking is charged but reasonably priced (€4 for day I think it was).

It's a little crowded at times on the tours of the fountains, but ever so much fun. It's also easy enough to avoid getting sprayed if you don't want to.

We got here by public transport and it was lots of fun to walk around. There is a restaurant on the premises that we enjoyed. The staterooms were nice to walk thru. The trick fountains were fun and refreshing since it was a hot day.

My husband and I had a great time at Hellbrunn! Especially the dining table outside, where I knew we'd be
sprayed, but it was still enjoyable. All of the puppets through Hellbrunn were water activated, which were really cool to watch, and the pond with the koi fish. Enjoyable day. We booked through the Sound of Music Tour.. And just had a great time. Oh, and to get there from Salzburg, we took the boat cruise. It was a fun day, sunny and warm, and just enjoyable! Visit Hellbrunn when you visit Salzburg!
