Palace Leopoldskron




Schloss Leopoldskron is pure inspiration! Situated in a unique lakeside location with magnificent view of the majestic mountains, the palace is only a short walk from the old town of Salzburg.

In 1736 the Prince Archbishop of Salzburg, Leopold Anton Freiherr von Firmian, was inspired to build his family residence in this beautiful and unique location. He died shortly after its completion in 1744 and, as an expression of his love for this palace, willed that his heart be buried beneath the chapel of Schloss Leopoldskron.

Ownership of the palace changed frequently throughout the 19th century. The most famous owner was King Louis I. of Bavaria, who celebrated the engagement of the future Empress Sissi to Emperor Franz Josef of Austria with the family at Schloss Leopoldskron.

In 1918 Max Reinhardt, the founder of the Salzburg Festival and Europe´s most famous theater impresario, bought the estate, lovingly restored it over the next twenty years to its original splendor, and making it an important international venue for the artistic and cultural life of his time.


Since 1965 the palace is world-famous for being the original film
location of the movie “The Sound of Music”
which has been seen by more than a billion people all over the world.
