Well worth the 25 Bus from Salzburg City Centre which took around 15mins. €3 entry person provided a token for a hot drink (which bizarrely cost without the token €3.50!). Usual Christmas market experience but on a much bigger scale and in a very safe...More

The Schloss and Trick Water Gardens are closed at this time of the year but instead, the grounds play host to an incredibly beautiful and magical advent market. Not as big as the main advent market in the center of Salzburg, this stunning and festive...More

We were there only to see the Gazebo from the Sound of Music. It's nice that the city moved it to such a beautiful location. We didn't really have time to stay for a tour of the Palace, though it would have been fun to...More

There is a unique Christmas Market on the grounds of the castle. Quite a different feel from the urban markets. Well maintained grounds with lots of Christmas trees, lights and decorations. There is an interesting small zoo and a Krampus display. Crowded, but still had...More

This is one of the nicest christmas markets I know. They prepare a very lovely ambient for walking around, with lots of christmas trees and lights. Best time to visit is after it becomes dark. Good place to park is the zoo, you can walk...More

You can walk around the park and see the grounds but not the fountains. It's not very big but worth a quick look. If you do the fountains watch out for the nasty guide who likes to get your cameras wet and get you wet on a... More
