I am from the US and I would retire in Salzburg in a heartbeat, first of all. No matter the weather, the town is just wonderful and bustling. The Castle is so neat. The trick fountains and the story behind them is great. Its good to go on a warm day, as you may get wet. Kids will love it!... More

We come here every time we visit Salzburg. We hire bikes and enjoy a bike ride along the river to Hellbrunn. The grounds are nicely kept and perfect for a picnic. if you have children there is a super play park. The bike ride back to Salzburg along the Hellbrunner Allee is just beautiful.

We came to see the gazebo from the Sound of Music movie that is located here (from our bicycling tour) with our kids (ages 8 and 10), and then returned the next day to visit the castle. The castle inside is nothing special, but the Trick Fountains outside are amazing! With your ticket you get a guided tour of the... More

We came on a very hot summer's day in July to Hellbrunn Castle, on the way back from Untersberg (also a must-see, see my review on this). As a result, the Trick Fountains guided tour was a very welcome bit of fun! I'm not going to spoil the surprise for you but I will say this - if you want... More

The famous Gazebo from the Sound of Music is located here. We visited it as part of the Panorama Sound of Music tour and the Gazebo totally brought back scenes from the movie. We also visited the trick fountains later when it was dark...highly entertaining fountains.

This is the place of resting the pavilion which was filmed in Sound of Music. Since I came here with the music tour, we didn't actually visit the palace and the park.

Relaxing palace to walk around. Good historical audio tour followed by the tour of the water gardens with the surprise fountains.
