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.

Good tour with an overview from the water and water games in the hunting lodge

The organization at the meeting point went smoothly, good instructions and then the program items in a modular composition: shipping on the Salzach with explanations of what you see - you can take inspiration for targeted visits as a good thing, then bus transfer to Hellbrunn Palace and guided tour of the garden of beautiful and varied Water games, then some time to stroll in the castle garden and transfer back by bus to the starting point. Overall, entertaining, interesting tour that can be recommended. Important note: guests get a little wet at the water games! You should know this beforehand and prepare for it or do something else.

It was a nice day, what is to be criticized is that you definitely have too little time in the castle, which is a shame, here you can see that it is a matter of money, pay a little, you have to get through enough groups, that the account is filled. I'm just saying mass processing.
