This is definitely the place to stay if you are a die-hard Sound of Music fan, but you have to understand that this is NOT a hotel in the city center sense--we had to share the bathroom. We were told that the internet connection is sketchy at times so we didn't pursue this option, instead opting for free wi-fi whenever we went to either McDonald's or Starbuck's. My partner and I actually slept very well despite the creakiness of the floor. It was very easy to get to the Villa from the airport. I would suggest buying the week-long bus pass at the gift shop at the airport; hope onto bus #2 or #10 just a few yards from the airport terminal exit door. Once on the bus, get off at the Hanuschplatz station--you'll know it when you pass through the tunnel; it'll be the second stop right after the tunnel. Hop off, then take the #7 bus (Salzburg Süd, Salzburgsee) until you get to Banhof-Aigen. Hop off there, cross the street and enter the tunnel at the train station taking you to the other side. From there follow the wall--it should always be on your right hand side. Follow it until you come to the entrace of the Villa (not the Josef College). At the insistance of my partner we had breakfast there one morning, but he soon found out that it wasn't worth the 10 euros per person (he just had to find that out for himself). We had a great time there, but the Villa Trapp was just basically our homebase--we were hardly there except for having a place to sleep.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Villa Trapp was the residence of the world-famous Von Trapp family, whose life in Salzburg entered history as "The Sound of Music", the most popular musical of all times. The villa is maintained in the style of this period, including 2 luxurious, 60 m² suites. They are exclusively furnished. In the past the Villa Trapp was not accessible to the public. Now you can sleep in the family's rooms and walk on their paths through the villa and the park. This stately building enjoys a quiet location close to the centre of Salzburg, surrounded by the city's largest private park. ... more less
