Schloss Leopoldskron

There are three films that I grew up with and marked my childhood in a very significant way: the french film “La Boum”, and the American musicals “Annie” and “The sound of music”.

The first weekend of April I had the great opportunity to stay and take photos in the premises of Schloss Leopoldskron where the “The sound of music” was filmed.

Who would have said that such a day would come? I was thrilled to be in the location where scenes of the musical were filmed and see the garden, the lake and the mountains with my own eyes. On top of that, it was also very exciting to see the place where a CHANEL fashion show was held on December 2014. CHANEL is known to always select only the best venues for their shows. Plus, we had the chance to take photos in the suite where Karl Lagerfeld stayed during the show. I still remember the moment I stepped into the beautiful suite and how it made me feel. The windows were open, the sunlight was coming in, the classical music was playing in the radio, a breathtaking view to the lake and mountains in front of me, and some kind of magic spread in the air.

In the weekend we spent at Schloss Leopoldskron, we were so lucky with the weather. It was the first days, after a very long time, that I could finally wear a summer dress without coat and tights. Hard to believe it while we were there, but Salzburg treated us to its best way. We stayed at the hotel Schloss Leopoldskron the whole day, and only went out for dinner, as the hotel doesn’t have a restaurant but you can find one right at the opposite side of the lake, a few minutes away on foot. The hotel offers breakfast though, served in the elegant halls of the palace. To be honest, there was not really a need to go out. I could easily spend hours taking photos of the palace or sunbathing in the garden and looking at the lake and mountains without thinking absolutely anything. The swing that was hanging from a big tree in front of the palace and the bicycles that the hotel offers for a ride were an extra highlight of our stay at the Schloss Leopoldskron.

A place like this shouldn’t be missed on The Viennese Girl blog. I recommend you to check out hotel Schloss Leopolodskron for many reasons. Not only for its historical background, but also because I think it’s a nice option for those who are seeking for an accommodation in Salzburg and for those who are looking for venues to host a wedding or events. I personally would love to come back. More on Instagram ♥

Last weekend I had the chance to visit one more part of Austria: the region Hochkönig. I am not a country, mountain type of girl but traveling means being open to various destinations, discovering places, diving into new cultures and venturing out of the city.

Under that adventurous state of mind, after the Uni lesson on Friday, I hopped on the train from Vienna to Salzburg. Then I had to change and take one more train to Bischofshofen (it doesn’t really matter that I still don’t know how to pronounce this word, right?). I arrived just on time for dinner, while everybody else caught an earlier train and was already there…

That weekend I felt like that little girl called Laura in the American TV series “Little House on the Prairie” that I was watching maniacally when I was a little child. I spent 2 nights on those wooden houses that are pictured above and every morning, on my way to breakfast, I was caressing horses, pigs, cats, dogs and sheep. I guess, this is how life in the Austrian countryside should be: peaceful and surrounded by big mountains.

The biggest challenge of the weekend: to go skiing for the very first time in my life. Don’t rush to judge me; I grew up by the sea…it wasn’t very easy but I had the best ski instructor (so, Alex if you are reading this thank you very much) who taught me the technique and encouraged me to ski alone.

For all the nature, mountains, ski and hiking lovers out there, the region Hochkönig has hands down a lot to offer and if you go to Ski Amade at Hochkönig, say “Hi” to Alex from The Viennese Girl…♥
