A helpful guide can be found here, or on the website of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Tourism (in German). Further information regarding the regulation of entry into Austria and similar matters can be accessed here (in English and other languages).

By taking care, you can protect yourself as well as other guests and our staff.

We are in regular contact with the local health authorities and follow their instructions regarding measures for public health and infection control. We have also engaged the services of a local doctor, who will work with us to carry out the necessary protocols for public health should a guest need medical advice or become ill during their stay.

Our aim is to keep the inconvenience for our guests to a minimum while these measures are in place, and as usual, we will do everything we can to offer you a pleasant and relaxing stay at Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron and in Salzburg. You can find a curated selection of sights and excursion spots here, while an overview of all the events in the city of Salzburg is available here. We are also happy to advise you in person!

Please do not hesitate to contact me directly if you have any questions or require further information. My team and I are looking forward to welcoming you at Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron!

Kind regards,
