The elegant Helbrunn is 6 kilometer away. from Salzburg. It was erected at the beginning of the 17th century for Archbishop M. Zittikus according to the design of the architect S. Solari. A Mannerist park is laid out in front of the palace, decorated with figures of stone monsters, fountains, secret grottoes and artificial ponds. The interior decoration of Helbrunn is quite luxurious, especially the main hall and the music lounge.

The castle itself looks better on the inside than on the outside and the ticket comes with an audio guide (not the best, though). It's a well preserved and well curated museum fully worth a visit if you enjoy history.
The water play is a mixed experience, you can see all the fountains for free, what you get is an audio guide describing each spot and a bit of a shower so it's not recommend on chilly days but it's great in summer especially if you go with kids.
The folk museum is on the hill, there is a bit of a hike but well worth it, albeit small it features a collection of great taste from icons to cabinets and costumes. Through the windows you also get a great view of the gardens.
Overall a five star experience!

One of my favorite places. We spent the entire day there. Visited the Schloss, the Water Trick Fountains and the Zoo plus the Folk Museum.
Even the outdoor cafe was good.
A wonderful place to take the family and combine fun with history
This place is very much serene. The trick fountain is amazing piece of art and culture. It is must visit place in Salzburg.
Unlike the general palace, which gives people a magnificent and even solemn feeling, as the summer residence of the naughty Archbishop Markus Sittikus, in addition to the large and quiet garden, it naturally has many interesting small institutions.

The most amusing garden that I have seen in Austria! I was absolutely amazed by the millions of creative ideas the owner of this palace had! I could imagine the orgias they had in the palace as well! :D
It was a beautiful palace and the trick fountains were so fun. Our two year old stayed entertained the whole time.
Plenty of parking, but it's not free. The fountains and museum are worth visiting. We can recommend the restaurant for lunch. We did not eat or drink in the cafe so can't comment on that. I recommend arriving early at 10am when they open.
