The castle is good. With a number of rooms telling the history of the castle and family and one very pretty room, you can have a relatively short, but fun time inside. The real draw are the trick fountains, cleverer and more ingenious in design...More

A good time. Especially in hot weather as the trick fountains allowed everyone to cool off. Could have probably spent longer.

Actually, there is a very good and reasonably priced restaurant on the grounds of Hellbrunn. Open for lunch but not breakfast that I know of.
