We took the train out from Munich to Salzburg and only had 8 hours and decided to spend some of that precious time in Hellburn and it was worth it. Took a bus out from city center short walk to the castle from the bus stop just follow the crowds. Have to book a tour time as soon as you reach it we were in time just before it opened so were able to get the very first one. The tour guide was enthusiastic and a lot of fun. He made the short 40 minute tour quite enjoyable. After the tour we walked around the grounds which were lovely.

Truly did not expect...
This was one of the best attractions on our trip. It is a fun stop. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was a very large group, would have liked to have a smaller group. Still enjoyed and was able to participate and hear all the tour guide had to show and tell us.

If you are in the Salzburg area you have to see this! We almost didn’t as we only had a day in Salzburg. While the palace itself, more specifically the rooms of the palace, perhaps don’t have the same level of beauty as some of the palaces we saw in Europe, the Trick Fountains are unique and overall just an amazing feat for something built so long ago. The ticket we bought got us into both a guided tour around the Trick Fountains and a self guided tour inside the palace. The tour guide was great, he spoke in both German and English and really added to the attraction by giving us the background stories as well as demonstrating what the fountains could do. Be prepared for a little water but don’t panic, we dried quickly. A great experience and attraction that you must get to! Have to see it for yourself!

A 20 minute ride from downtown.We did an audio tour of the palace,nothing amazing. After that visited the trick fountain, which was the highlight of our trip to Hellbrunn. Our guide was hilarious and had everyone laughing. It was a good time and was fun to avoid getting wet in the water. The thought and technology involved in having this cute water park is impressive.

The grounds and gardens are well maintained and are good to stroll or relax. Photo opportunity at the Sound of Music gazebo.

The garden is nice. The sculpture and fishes around the clear pond is very pleasant. However, I bought Salzburg card and went to the place in late Nov '13, they stop the water trick. Only regular water in the pond. Anyway, it's nice to get the fresh air there.
