It is widely known for water- powered figures and trick fountains that were intended to surprise guests. As you take a tour through the Hellbrunn Castle you probably will get as well. They only person who won’t get caught is your tour guide. He or she knows every spot and the only seats that doesn’t get sprayed by fountains.
