Sound of Music Film Locations in Salzburg:

  • Mirabell Gardens - The Mirabell Gardens were laid out in the 18th century. Maria and the children were seen dancing around the statue of Pegasus, the winged horse, and throughout the gardens singing 'Do-Re-Mi'.
  • Leopoldskron Castle - The front side of the castle was used as the Trapp family home, the children were boating on the Leopoldskron Lake and fell into the water. The Venetian room was copied from the castle and used as the ballroom.
  • Hellbrunn Castle - This hunting castle was built in the early 17th century by Prince-Archbishop Markus Sittikus. In the gardens the glass pavillion was reconstructed for the pleasure of those fans still returning after 30 years.
  • Nonnberg Abbey - Nonnberg Abbey is the oldest convent in the German speaking part of Europe. Maria was a novice there. The baron and Maria were married here in 1927. The scenes for the movie made here include the opening with the nuns going to Mass and Maria coming too late.
  • St.Gilgen and Lake Wolfgang - Scenery shown at the beginning of the movie was filmed at Lake Fuschl on the way to St. Gilgen. Like the Mozart family, visitors from all over the world appreciate the beautiful village in the Salzkammergut.
  • Wedding Church Mondsee - In Mondsee Cathedral the film wedding between Julie Andrews as Maria and Christopher Plummer as the Baron took place.

The coach will visit all film locations listed above. You will get off the bus at Leopoldskron Castle, Hellbrunn Castle , St. Gilgen and Lake Wolfgang and Mondsee.

This tour was a blast. The tour guide, Peter, was the absolute highlight of the trip but everything else was just great as well. Well planned, good timing for the stops...a great and careful bus driver.
You see most of the exterior shots from the movie as well as geogous countryside.
I highly recommend this tour to everyone!
Peter, thanks for all the great insider information and the many, many good laughs.

It was good to see the places where the film was filmed. We stayed in Salzburg for a few days and after the tour we went back to some of the sights at our leisure. Well worth the money, however hotel pick up was by mini bus and by the time it arrived at the coach all the best seat were taken. So a bit of advice - if you can get to the bus without pick up you can arrive early and get the better seats.
