We originally wanted to stay in the old part of Salzburg, but the hotels we were interested in were booked — and thank goodness, because otherwise we never have stumbled upon the Schloss Leopoldskron! The hotel sits right on the lake of The Sound of Music fame (in the movie, it's the lake behind the von Trapp house, and the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Sound of Music pilgrammage, the setting is stunning. Hardly saw any staff around, it was like we had the whole place to ourselves so we were free to roam around the building and explore to our hearts content. Breakfast in the ballroom was excellent. Bit of a trek to the town... More

Wonderful hotel. My owners just loved it, and I was welcome. We went for a nice jog around the lake every morning, and I gave my owner a good workout. The staff were very nice and friendly.

We recently stayed in the recently refurbished Meierhof building at the Schloss, having stayed at this property a couple times before. In the past we loved the locale, the lake, and the historical feeling of the Schloss, but the rooms were shabby....Now, we would rate the quality of the Meierhof rooms as equal to any nice, modern hotel. We had... More

We spent 4 nights in the beautifully renovated Maierhof of the Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron. The attitude and the hospitality of each staff member is extraordinary in this hotel. What I liked about it most is that the staff is obviously 'allowed' to keep their own character while doing a really good job - something that I couldn't find during all... More

This was our second trip to Salzburg after falling in love with the city in December 2012. We promised we would come back and as Sound Of Music fans we were keen to stay at Schloss Leopoldskron. Our room was absolutely gorgeous, with a view of the lake and the Untersberg from the window. The hotel grounds are stunningly picturesque... More

Simply does not make sense to stay anywhere else in Salzburg. You are in the city but also out of the heavily tourist populated areas. Take a 5-minute ride with one of the cool city bikes of the hotel and be in the center of Salzburg. Ride another 5 minutes back to the Schloss and enjoy the tranquility and the... More

I stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms in the Meierhof building which looked onto the lake and is a view I can highly recommend as it puts you right into the magic of the Schloss, its historic surroundings and beautiful nature. You can even watch the castle's own ducklings go for a swim! The room was spacious and... More
