Double Indian & Austrian Style wedding in Salzburg, Schloss Leopoldskron

True love stories
never have endings.

Richard Bach

Salzburg offers romantics a wonderful setting in which to get married or enjoy a honeymoon. Though May is famous as the “month of love”, you will see white wedding carriages rolling through the streets of the city at all times of year.

Picturesquely situated Schloss Leopoldskron lies just a few minutes’ walk from the Salzburg historical district, the world-famous former family seat of one of the prince-archbishops as well as an original shooting location from the movie “The Sound of Music”.

In 1736, Salzburg prince-archbishop Leopold Anton Freiherr von Firmian built Schloss Leopoldskron as the family residence. Standing right next to the beautiful Leopoldskron Pond, it captivates with panoramic views of the surrounding mountain world. Because of his special ties to the palace, the prince-archbishop had his heart interred in the chapel of Schloss Leopoldskron.

Europe’s most famous theater impresario, Max Reinhardt, purchased Schloss Leopoldskron in 1918. Over the course of 20 years, he restored this jewel of the Baroque to renewed glory. In those days, the palace also served as an international, high-profile meeting place for the artistic and cultural scene. Furthermore, it was here that Max Reinhardt, together with Hugo von Hofmannsthal and Richard Strauss, founded the Salzburg Festival.
Since 1965, Schloss Leopoldskron has been well known far beyond Austria’s borders as an original shooting location for the world-famous movie “The Sound of Music”. Nowadays, it is a stopping point on many guided tours of the city, enchanting visitors with its rich history as well as its magical location. It should be noted that admission to the palace, the park grounds and its historic landmarks is restricted solely to invited guests and customers of the house.
