Salzburg Photos: Schloss Leopoldskron Palace & Untersberg
return to "summer
Schloss Leopoldskron Palace was built by Prince Archbishop Firmian in the later 18th century. The house of Firmian expressed its re-covered self-confidence with Leopoldskron. Later, the palace was turned into a hotel and finally bought by director and theatre manager Max Reinhardt, one of the key figures at the founding of the
Salzburg Festival. Today, Schloss Leopoldskron is owned by the
Salzburg Global Seminar. In the background of the picture, you can see
Mount Untersberg, the highest mountain in Salzburg′s immediate surroundings. The palace featured in ′The Sound of Music′ as the Villa Trapp, however, it never belonged to the Trapp family.
