Positive Reviews


Special Access

This historic property is not normally accessible to the public, so guests of this hotel are one of a few who enjoy the privilege of strolling the palace and the grounds freely. You can explore the gorgeous library of Max Reinhardt's library, and see if you can locate the hidden staircase. Outside, you can enjoy views of the lake, walk around the gardens, or play a round of mini-golf.


Gorgeous Grounds

The castle boasts a lovely location far enough from town to assure a peaceful stay, but close enough to walk to Altstadt, and all of Salzburg's highlights. Set on the Leopoldskroner Weiher Lake, the hotel offers access to several jogging and biking trails, on which guests can take advantage of the hotel's bike rentals.


Morning Delight

Don't miss out on the excellent breakfast service. The complimentary buffet boasts a plentiful and varied selection of both hot and cold foods, all of which is beautifully presented. Make sure to take a look around too, as the dining room is often described as a work of art on its own. Although on warm days, you can enjoy your morning meal on the balcony as well.

Negative Reviews


No A/C

The one downside of this hotel is that there is no air conditioning, which is not unusual, given that this is a historic property. Guests say it can get a bit stuffy in the rooms during the summer.
