Few buildings have made history like the Schloss Leopoldskron. The Rococo castle is located on a picturesque lake, and has served as a location for more than one momentous occasion. King Louis I once threw a lavish engagement party for Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife-to-be, Sissi. The acclaimed Salzburg Festival was also born here, and an iconic scene in “The Sound of Music” was filmed on the waters. You can either marvel at the beautiful palace from the other side of the lake, or plan an overnight stay inside, where you can enjoy the luxury of a spacious suite.
