A highlight of our Salzburg visit. We would consider it a must see. We loved all of the fountains and the imagination of the person who built them. These are more than the typical fountains. You will be surprised where the water comes out of as y.. Read more »

Worth a visit. Trick fountains could've done with a bit more trickery as we weren't getting wet that much but still a fun enough place for the family day out. Kids will enjoy it ....if they get a chance to get wet. Gardens are lovely and .. Read more »

The trick fountains are fun to experience and technologically incredible in part. It is worth a visit to see them and the crest of the palace museums.

We have been here twice. And we have loved it every time. It's such a lovely atmosphere, especially on holidays and Sundays. There is so much to do and lovely spaces to walk and places to eat. The zoo is within the grounds and has a few shops an.. Read more »

It has a long hallway that's so beautiful and green, you have the water tricks garden which you can enter for a fee. There are water lakes in the outside yard which have fish inside that gives the whole palace a better view. I think it was used .. Read more »

Lots to do and see at this estate so make sure you give yourself enough time. A great combination of trails and museum attractions. If you want to see the trick fountains and you have a Salzburg Card, you'll need to still register to get tickets.. Read more »

Beautiful castle and parks, free for just walking and admiring all the beauty... In the beginning of the entrance catwalk, there is a Sound of Music pavilion where the famous scene with Lisle and Rolf was filmed.
Tanya Kronfeld

This was a nice stop on the Sound of Music Tour. The gazebo from the movie has been moved here so that it is easily accessible to fans of the movie. The original location is now a hotel. You could spend an afternoon looking around and enjoying the hi.. Read more »

Wonderfully preserved Palace and grounds. Well worth a visit to the water Gardens where you'll be, potentially, squirted at by the fountains! Lovely stories to be told on the tour. You can also get an amazing view of the mountains or city as .. Read more »

Obvious choice when you are around, visit it before a walk on the top of the Untersberg. The funny trick fountains are the remains of a past era, the whole visit is one hour and it is a gem. In the parking lot you can pay by card (which is not obviou.. Read more »

A very nice place to visit and the tricky Fountain is surprisingly good. Would have rated it 5*, but the lady selling the photo there is such a joke: one photo for 7.9 euro, I gave 8. then she refused to give me the change until i repeatedly asking f.. Read more »

Another one among top things to do is visit to Hellbrunn Palace and trick fountains. They have 18th century hydraulic mechanism which runs the fountains and many little figurines which put up spectacular show.

Nice experience on a warm day in the tricky fountains. Even the open space is nice to walk. Inside the palace, its simpler and not too much to see.
Ankit Jaiswal
Superb Palace with a lot of surprises. A must visit on your Salzburg trip. It's also included in Salzburg Card. Trick Fountains are the best. The garden is also good and very peaceful.
Eric Rising
This was a very neat place. We did this as part of the Salzburg City card. Palace and gardens and fountains were interesting. Kind of fun that the staff (sort of) tries to 'get you' like the old Archbishop did with the water. Definitely som.. Read more »

Beautiful walk to the palace grounds, amazing gardens they got.. and the long walk up to the top. Reward - Half of Vienna from the top with the palace right in front
Lee Wills
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
Koushik Saha
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. H.. Read more »

Great grounds, cost of 2 euros to park. Kids loved the fish in the ponds

The gardens and trick water fountain are beautiful. Def worth the visit. Do consider taking the Salzburg card as it provides free access to this place and other attractions in salzburg.

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
Molly Bunch
It was a beautiful palace and the trick fountains were so fun. Our two year old stayed entertained the whole time.
Les Rhoades
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.
