The guided tour of the trick fountains is a must-do! It was easy to walk through the castle self-guided within 30-45 minutes.

Leave the zillions of tourists in Salzburg behind and take the time to leisurely visit Hellbrunn Castle. This place was built 1613-1615 by the ruling Prince Archbishop as a getaway from the stress of courtly life. The palace was never lived in, nor was it...More

Perfect for a nice short adventure tour out of the city. Exploring the edges of Salzburg. Here is laying this beautiful castle with a nice park to relax a bit. Many public busses offer trip to here

We went here specifically to see the gazebo from The Sound of Music, but there is so much more here. I wish we had had time to wander the grounds.
