The grounds and palace are nice but what makes this place truly special are the fountains. The tour guides possess the sort of campy humor one would find on Disney's Jungle Cruise and are not above getting anyone caught in the water spray. All-in-all it was an informative, fun tour that I would recommend to anyone of any age.

The trick fountains make Hellbrunn well worth visiting even if gardens and palaces aren't generally your thing (although I should probably say that I love a good landscaped garden), and the water is very refreshing on a hot day. The rest of the grounds are beautifully landscaped and the palace itself is very interesting. Definitely worth a visit if you... More

The Hellbrunn trick fountains are truly amazing. I am amazed that this much effort was put into something so fun in the 17th century and that it still works. You will join a tour that guides you through this rather small area but it is pack with small and large water driven displays. You should prepare to get wet by... More

The Wasserspiele or Hellbrunn Trick Fountains are very interesting place even for both children and elders. Ticket cost is Euro 10.50 for adult and a free entry for this guided tour is included in Salzburg Card. Besides this guided tour through trick fountains, Hellbrunn palace and the adjacent vast and wide beautiful park also attracts tourist. one should spend atleast... More

If you are looking to visit a place near Salzburg, I highly recommend that you visited this place. It's near Salzburg, within 15 minute driving distance. A nice big garden with beautiful scenery!

The Hellbrunn Trick Fountains (Wasserspiele) are located on the grounds of Schloss Hellbrunn, a summer day residence built in the early 1600s by the Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg. The Prince-Archbishop, who had a keen sense of humor, designed the fountains as a series of practical jokes to perform on his guests. The tour will take you through several gardens, grottos, and...

The palace isn't that big but the grounds around the place are huge. They are beautiful with fountains and ponds which add to the beauty of the scenery. The guided audio tour is a superb way of going through the palace. The small fountain works and the mechanical scenery that is showcased all around the palace is extraordinary. The souvenir... More
