We rented bikes from the Old city and rode all the way to Hellbrun Castle were we had a beautiful picnic and later we got wet at the different playgrounds they had.

This castle is not at all big and has may be 5 or 6 rooms in total. This was a summer residence. This palace was good for the fact that it is next to the trick fountains. Check my trick fountains review for more about it.

There are different language audio guides available at the entrance and the total tour time including trick fountains would be 1 hour.

It is 6km from the city and in a pleasant place

This is a must see for all visitors to Salzburg. The 'trick fountains' are great fun.The gardens and lakes are so beautiful.

I've been here twice - once by myself and once with my wife, and I really enjoyed it both times. Amazing mechanical machinery that runs the surprising water fountains. Nearly impossible not to get wet, but well worth it. It's set outside of Salzburg in a park setting with hiking trails.

The 250 bus on the return from Untersburg passes by Hellbrun, with the bus stop clearly announced and having the advantage of being the exact same stop to get the return to Salzburg as its a circular route. We, two adults, visited as we were near, it was hot and we had a Salzburg card. It is really good that the bus and entry is included in the card. The visit to the trick fountains is great fun, you do get a little wet (some more than a little) but on a sunny day it was great, a chance for grown ups to 'play' have fun and laugh. If you don't laugh I recommend you stay at home! The engineering involved at the time it was made makes it more astounding. The grounds are beautiful, you could easily spend a day, picnic, park etc and the Sound of Music gazebo.
