This is one of the funniest historical attractions in the world. Built by the Prince Archbishop of Salzburg in the 1700s, there are trick fountains that surprise guests with dousings and sprays of water from hidden spouts in bushes, chairs and other spots. Bring a change of clothes if you don't like being wet. Great attraction for kids in Salzburg.Recommended for:

Built around 1700, these fountains were meant to play practical jokes on visiting nobility, soaking them at unexpected moments. Assuming you're not wearing your ball gown, getting soaked on a hot summer's day is actually very welcome. Needless to say, this is also a great place to take kids.

Watergames at Hellbrun are really very funny. Hellbrun is a baroque villa built around 1600. These games were built around 1700 as a series of practical jokes to be performed on guests. Notable features include stone seats around a stone dining table through which a water conduit sprays water into the seat of the guests when the mechanism is activated, and hidden fountains that surprise and spray guests while they take part on the tour. Other features are a mechanical, water-operated and music-playing theatre built in 1750 showing various professions at work, a grotto and a crown being pushed up and down by a jet of water, symbolising the rise and fall of power. A really funny way to spend a couple of hours but....take some clothes to dress up, after this tour you will be completely wet.

fun place not to be missed! Not only for kids. Especially in summer if you do not mind to get wet. The Archbishop, Markus Sittikus, who used the place as a summer day retreat must have been full of humor :) Do not miss the beautiful gardens including the stone theatre.Recommended for:
