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.
