Itinerary

Day 1: Schloss Leopoldskron
Check in to your guesthouse at Schloss Leopoldskron in the afternoon. An impressive hideaway located just minutes from Salzburg’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town, the historical palace-come-hotel sits by an idyllic lake with panoramic views of the Alps and Hohensalzburg Fortress, surrounded by 17 acres (7 hectares) of manicured grounds. Schloss Leopoldskron now functions as a private hotel, offering accommodation in the main 18th-century palace building, two town houses and in the adjacent Meierhof guesthouse.

After checking in, the whole day is yours to spend as you please. Your hotel offers free bike rentals and a public pool for your enjoyment, and you’re welcome to wander Salzburg at your leisure. The guesthouse offers a welcome drink as part of your stay, so head to the bar to enjoy this whenever you want.

Overnight: Meierhof guesthouse, Schloss Leopoldskron

Day 2: Schloss Leopoldskron – Salzburg The Sound of Music movie sites – Schloss Leopoldskron (B)
After a buffet breakfast in the main palace building, start your tour of The Sound of Music filming locations with your guide. View the breathtaking landscapes and locations in and around Schloss Leopoldskron where the movie was filmed, and visit historical and architectural landmarks throughout Salzburg and the picturesque lake district.

The front side of Schloss Leopoldskron was used as the Von Trapp family home. Remember the scene where the kids fall out of the boat into the water? That scene took place on Leopoldskron Lake, just steps away from the palace. See the Venetian room, which inspired the movie’s ballroom scenes, and visit the gazebo where Sixteen Going on Seventeen was sung.

Leave Schloss Leopoldskron and travel by coach to more filming sites throughout Salzburg. Learn about the story of the real Von Trapp family and listen to your favorite songs from the movie including My Favorite Things, Edelweiss and, of course, the glorious title song: The Sound of Music.

Pass by Nonnberg Abbey, where Maria was a novice nun, and Mirabell Gardens, where Maria and the children were seen dancing around the statue of Pegasus the winged horse while singing Do-Re-Mi.

Stop to see the glass pavilion in the gardens of Hellbrunn Castle and ogle the scenery of St Gilgen and Lake Wolfgang. Then, make the most of some free time in Mondsee to visit Mondsee Cathedral (own expense), where Maria and Captain Von Trapp were married.

Your movie tour ends in central Salzburg and, before leaving, your guide will give you a souvenir of your experience. From here you’re free to stroll through Salzburg Old Town and enjoy coffee and cake at the famous Cafe Fürst — simply show a voucher given to you at your guesthouse. Make your own way back to Schloss Leopoldskron independently and spend your evening as you wish.

Overnight: Meierhof guesthouse, Schloss Leopoldskron

The setting is out of a story book. The facility is elegant and historical at the same time. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast in the Palace was delicious. The Palace is well, a Palace. Words can't describe. Altogether, this was an incredible experience that I hope to repeat. The Sound of Music tour was interesting as well as fun. Singing and riding along to Sound of Music soundtrack. Loads of fun!

Tour was disappointing though as we didn't get to see everything we wanted.

The grounds of the hotel were out of a dream! You find yourself in a state of trying to permanently imprint the beauty in your mind. The service was good but not great with one person manning the small cafe/bar and the front desk during evening hours. Rooms were clean and comfortable.

The highlight of our Salzburg visit. Breakfast is served in a beautiful dining hall and you get private access to an actual Sound of Music location while the tour bus groups have to look at the location from a far distance. Worth it.

Wonderful. If you want to explore the grounds where The Sound of music was filmed this is the only way. Amazing hotel and staff. Great buffet breakfast incl. Tour was outstanding. It snowed and the country side was beautiful, even with reduced viability. Great package. Worth every dollar.

Salzburg is beautiful. The stay at Schloss Leopoldskorn was an experience. It's a beautiful place, tranquil and serene, not a place for kids but for honeymooners or those who wish to be away from the busy town centre. Good place to relax and read and just laze around. Service is good and staff are friendly. The Sound of Music Tour was fun and entertaining.
