Not only Because it Is nice castle but Because it Is insight at Way of living. Bischops and clerics use to have here their pleasure getaway.

The castle itself is pretty and the tour is ok but what you really have to tour is the gardens and the trick fountains! Make sure you wear something you don't mind getting a little wet in and prepare to be surprised!

Very nice place , with really beautiful gardens . I disagree that this place and this whole town tries to market itself based on the Sound of Music , and Mozart

Beautiful grounds and the trick fountains were great. The guide was very entertaining and since it was a really hot day we didn't mind getting wet!

We were able to visit the Sound of Music Pavilion which is located near the Schloss Helburnn. Worth a look.

This Castle has the most whimisical gardens. I have been here before but enjoyed it so much I returned on this trip. You go in timed groups and you are amused and surprised at the same time. Really this is not to be missed

Schloss Hellbrunn is in my opinion the best attraction of Salzburg. Located outside the city the spacious parks and gardens of Hellbrunn Palace are a wonderful place to unwind, take a walk and enjoy a bit of outdoor sport. And here you will find the famous...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

I'd plan for 30-40 minutes for the actual tour, but you will probably want to walk the grounds a little as well as they are quite lovely. I would highly recommend going at dusk - lit up the fountains and statuary are really... More
