We only went as it was on way back from the cable car and free with the Salzburg card. We had a very funny couple of hours. The palace is charming in its own right and the museum exhibits add to this with more than a touch of eccentricity. Then we did the fountain tour. It was so funny, we... More

The palace has wonderful gardens. One can tour the fountains and water park separately. This takes about an hour. There are lot of fountains which operate without the knowledge of the tourists, so prepare to get wet, but its a very good experience and fun.

The entirety of the Hellbrun palace is beautiful but the gardens are stunning. We went in the end of fall so the different colours made this place all the more special.The fountains were a bit overrated though.

When we were there they were set up up for a Krampus event, but the gardens were maintained beautifully and i was glad the fountains were off as it was below freezing

We enjoyed the area of Hellbrunn itself, riding there with a bike hired from our hotel. I was keen to see the trick fountains but found this attraction very boring. We were meant to be on the English tour yet the gate attendant turned us away, allowing others to join, instructing us to go on the next tour. This turned... More

Although the fountains were not operational when we visited in December, the tile and coral like material, statutes, and mosaics were beautiful. Less visitors and more chance to enjoy the sight in winter.

Bought a 24 hour ticket for E3 .70 (?) from the bus station (can buy off driver) and caught the 25 to Hellbrunn . It was a beautiful sunny day and spent a lot of time walking around grounds.Buses run every 20 minutes.
