Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron

Well we left the Hotel Kaiserhoff this morning at 8.50 for the main train station.
In hindsight I wish we had chosen to take all travel through Europe on the train system as it is so wonderful and guaranteed no turbulence !!
Seriously though, lol. The trains throughout Europe are lovely, very relaxing, the sights along the way …
Today was the first day we have slept in past 7 am and saw a little sun shine! It was so nice. We took it easy this morning by walking around the entire city (not hard to do, it is a small place) before heading to our tour of the Bavarian Alps! The tour was very different from what we expected. Only mom and I were on the Alps tour and another man was on a salt mining tour. The combined the two tours together, which was near impossible. So ...
I love it here! We spent the morning on a city tour. There was only one nice person on our tour. I even asked the guide about their medical system to consider living here for a bit. It was poring rain this morning but cleared up to just be cloudy and cold in the afternoon. It is going to be in the high 40's tonight! I had brought no warm clothes and we had to go get some today. We toured gardens at a ...
... summer tobogganing. They had a fantastic system where you sat on a toboggan on wheels on a track that was mechanically dragged up the hill to the starting point. A gentleman at the top assisted us to place our toboggan on the slide that would take us to the bottom. All the toboggan had was a centrally located stick – push it forward and we would go faster; pull it back and it would slow down. It was great fun and after all who wanted to, had had a ...
... the lift operator, we discovered that not only was it OK, but we could take our bikes up at no extra cost (only €5 anyway) so we loaded them in and up we went. It was a lovely ride with views over the town and surrounding mountains.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Schloss Leopoldskron Salzburg
When I last visited this location it was a school and we had to trespass to get some good photos. I voiced the opinion that it should be a bed and breakfast and open to the public and from what I have learned it now is! What a fantastic location for a bed and breakfast! You will wake to the sight of the Untersberg reflected in the lake behind the schloss and greeted with the delicate songs of twittering birds in the trees on the property. It is enough to make you want to burst into song!
