What an incredible place! I know this review may be late but it was really beautiful. Pristine lake, the exact location where the Von trappe family and Maria tumbled out of the boat and especially the ballroom in which we had breakfast in! I fell in love with Salzburg and is since my most treasured and favorite place in Europe!... More

We booked this hotel for 3 nights in July when visiting Salzburg and surrounding areas. The hotel is close enough to Salzburg but not walking distance to the old town. We had a car and found plenty of parking that was convenient to the sites in Salzburg. We booked a room in the Schloss which is the older palace building... More

Stayed here in January, as I was attending a work event at the nearby Salzburg Global Seminar (which is where they filmed THAT film). This is a gorgeous hotel, right by the lake, and inside it's like being in a castle. There are endless corridors and nooks and corners, plus a small bar area near reception. It's rare to stay...

Just got home after a two-night Sound of Music package stay at the Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron, and am already wondering whether it was all a dream. Truly the most magical and peaceful place I've ever stayed. Looking out from the Schloss over the frozen lake at chocolate box-style snow upon mountains under gin-clear skies, while breathing the freshest air imaginable,... More

I had the pleasure of visiting Schloss Leopoldskron this past January. Situated idyllically on a lake, the Schloss is truly stunning. I was personally welcomed by the General manager and stayed in a suite which was spacious and absolutely perfect in every sense of the word.

Leopoldskron is an exceptionally lovely place full of amazing history. We used it as a location for our winter wedding. I can only recommend it. But I can also recommend using a wedding planner. Dealing with the event department directly is a very unpleasant experience. I have never met such an unfriendly, unmotivated and chaotic bunch. Very unusual for Austria,... More

As a big fan of The Sound of Music I was so excited when I found out you could stay at the place Captain Von Trapp's house was filmed in the movie. The grounds are enchanting, the lake is beautiful with the backdrop of the snow-capped alps on one side and the Salzburg Fortress on the other. The palace library... More
