Hellbrunn Palace and park are beautiful. I liked them a lot. The trip to the castle was by boat. That was fun and well organized. But the return trip was by bus and that disappointed me a bit, I wouldn't have minded going back by boat. Only one route was not enough for me. But the trip to Hellbrunn was a very good idea.

Shipping was great, the old English double decker ride was cool too, if a little rickety. Unfortunately, there were only audio guides for the water features. It would have been nicer if we had been given a personal tour - that's why we didn't get full marks in the evaluation.

The trip on the Salzach was very nice, afterwards we continued with the London bus to Hellbrunn Palace. There we had a great tour of the water features. Unfortunately the group was very large and you shouldn't be afraid of water. After the 40-minute tour, you still had the opportunity to take a look at the castle and the castle garden. Unfortunately, this time was very tight at 35 minutes. Half an hour more would have been great. Finally, we were driven back to the city on the iconic London bus. All in all a great experience.
