Anif Castle is located on the south side of Salzburg not far away Hellbrun Castle.
This is another of the castles that was used during the filming of Sound of Music. Its other claim to fame was that is was home to the world famous conductor Herbert von Karajan.
Anif Castle is actually Wasserschloss or Water castle and it dates back to 16th century. It was used by the bishops of Chiemsee. Afterwards it was restored in 19th century in neo-Gothic style. Nowadays it is a private property so there are no guided tours available.
Once you have seen Hellbrunn Palace with its stunning part and fountains well hardly anything can compare. [more ]
