“Great fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

If you have the Salzburg card take the number 25 from Rathaus. The bus is free and entrance is free.

The water gardens with the trick fountains are great, especially on a hot day, but the castle itself is also an interesting historical piece. An hour or so can be spent wandering the castle (more like a grand house) and reading about the history of the place and the people.

The gardens are big too. Nice for a stroll.

“Very picturesque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

We jumped on a local bus to visit here and it was well worth the visit. The castle hosts its own Christmas market during December and goes all out with the decorations - it was lovely. Lots to see and do, including a Christmas petting zoo for kids, reindeers and all. The gardens are well worth exploring, even on a cold, very snowy day like we had. Lovely location.

At the outskirt of the city it's a must visit to see and to learn more of the land of Salzburg / Austria simply delightful....

“Gotta see it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

Great views of the city and worth the time. Take the tram to save time (rather than walking up the hill).

“Fun for children”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Wasn't much impressed with the castle itself. The grounds were lovely and some cute trick fountains that the kids enjoyed, but don't think I'd recommend for adults only
