Who doesn't love a comedy water garden?

I brought my 7 year old daughter to a place I remembered so fondly from my own visit as a child. It's hard to say which is most fun : going round yourself, seeing the kids scream... read more

At first glance, this is a rather expensive experience at €12 each (students €8). However, this does include entrance into the palace and the museum. The fountains are very pretty however you are required to go on a guided tour of them (presumably so that the guide can work the fountains). This meant that it took a lot longer to... More

I brought my 7 year old daughter to a place I remembered so fondly from my own visit as a child. It's hard to say which is most fun : going round yourself, seeing the kids scream with delight or watching the overly precious and self important adults get all grumpy when they're caught out.

This is a place like no other. It is a short bus ride from the main tourist area and worth the trip. I don't want to spoil the surprise by saying more. :)

This is a fun place to visit for adults and children. The house was built by the local Bishop and the gardens are a delight and contain water features to delight. Best on a sunny warm day. I addition to the gardens tour you are also free to visit the museum in the house. A nice restaurant is also on... More

As long as the weather is nice (it was for us) this is a must if you are in the area. The guided tour takes approx 40 minutes showing 6 or 7 fountains, grottos and a mechanical theatre that all function with water-power. Fun and impressive, considering these things were made 400 years ago. The kids and kids at heart... More

Good place to visit if you have free time. We visited this place through the sound of music trip. I would recommend this place only if you have free time

Kids love the trick fountains, and getting drenched at the trick table. Lots of family fun. Easy to get to when you're in Salzburg.

"Die Wasserspiele" are an attraction created by duke/archbishop Marcus Sitticus some 400 years ago. It's important to understand this fact when visiting the place (and criticizing it in reviews). For what it's worth, it came as a marvel to the duke/archbishop's visitors back then from whereabouts all those fountains come from. To enjoy this attraction, you need the right mindset.... More

This was a totally unexpected experience - the most enjoyable of the visits we did in Salzburg, Won't spoil by describing what it is - one MUST experience it. Even if you get wet - it dries up fairly quick in the summer The tours are in English and German - and the guide we had was a young girl... More
