Amazing place - make sure you do the fun tour of the water fountains that are around the edge of the schloss. This is where the conservatory from the Sound of Music is located.

The visit was a lot of fun! It's a very nice castle, with interesting information, but the fun part is the trick fountains. It's great fun and is very entertaining. No spoilers but I'll say this: be prepared to get wet!

We went there on a hot summer day. Accessible by car and bus. Kids love it. The guide was excellent. You get wet, which means you need to do it on a sunny day.

Don't miss it if you have time. Tricky fountains are great, giving insight in what money and time could build several hundred years ago. Park is beautiful, it's oasis of peace and quiet...if there aren't many tourists :-)

This was a very interesting place. The fact that it is a castle with so much detail and ornate items but to think that you could have been sitting down with the bishop all dressed up in your suits and gowns and then he pushes a button and all the fountains go off and you get wet. He must have... More

Hellbrunn Schloss is worth a visit if you are visiting Salzburg! The park and garden are beautiful and the audio tour was the perfect length. I'd recommend to also go to the Wasserspiel, especially on a hot day! The tours for that are in German and English. I would also highly recommend to go visit the nearby park behind Hellbrunn....

Take the short drive to this lovely place and enjoy trick fountains, (Be prepared to get wet), peaceful grounds and the main house and courtyard. Our group had a terrific guide through the gardens and fountains. Self-guided tour of the castle was leisurely and interesting. Pretty.
