“Baroque splendor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Take time to read the historic stories on the plaques.
Not too many rooms to wander, but enough to see. Well worth the entry price. Get a ticket with all included.
Beautiful history

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Hellbrunn Castle was the highlight of our day - such a beautiful place! Loved everything about it. Just wish we could have stayed longer. Worth the trip out there.

“Worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Was curious about this attraction place because of the "trick" fountains, and decided to visit it. Glad we visited it because the fountains and park was beautiful. we took our time to stroll through the garden. The water springing out of nowhere added fun to the guided tour as there were happy squeals and shouts from the visitors who were sprayed at.

“So much to see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We really enjoyed our day at the Castle - we spent about 4 hours there. We ate lunch in the courtyard, climbed the tower and saw all of the museums. It was well worth the climb!

“GO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Get a Salzburg card, get on the number 25 bus and go. You have to be taken around the water garden on a guided tour because the guide has to work the various fountains and make you wet. No-one will escape, but ours was good and did not soak anyone - it is part of the fun and the water features are magnificent. The rest of the gardens,zoo and the palace can be explored at your own pace and are all worth it. The zoo is small but delightful and, again, covered by the Salzburg card. The folklore museum at the top of the hill offers a superb view and lots of information about butchery! Some local students were being lectured by a local butcher while we were there, it was a bit surreal!
