Schloß Leopoldskron It looks back at a plentiful past as a birthplace of the Salzburg festival and location of the world-famous film "The Sound of Music." The castle is American private property and hence not publicly accessible. Only guests of the house may enjoy the pleasure of 11 suites in the castle or 55 rooms in the Meierhof. Guests of Schloss Leopoldskron are treated to breakfast in the Marble Hall where the likes of Archbishop Firmian and Max Reinhardt once dined. The façade facing the lake represented the von Trapp residence. Sound of Music: Scenes in which you see the garden and the terrace: the family drinking pink lemonade ("not too sweet,, not too sour, just too... pink!"); the children falling off the boat in the lake, Maria and the Captain arguing. The Venetian room from the castle was copied and used as the ballroom for the interior shootings which werde done in the studios.
