There are three films that I grew up with and marked my childhood in a very significant way. The french film “La Boum”, the American musical “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 a few scenes of “The sound of music” were filmed.
Who would have ever thought that I would have that kind of opportunity? 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.
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 Max Reinhardt Suite and how it made me feel. The windows were open. Sunlight was coming in. 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.
The weekend we spent at Schloss Leopoldskron, we were so lucky with the weather. These were 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. 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.
Check out Hotel Schloss Leopolodskron for many reasons. Not only for its historical background. It’s a great 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.
