Trace the footsteps of Maria and the Von Trapps on this 4-hour original 'Sound of Music' tour from Salzburg. Traveling by minivan, witness some of the musical’s filming locations, including the Mirabell Gardens, the lakefront Schloss Leopoldskron that served as the Von Trapp home, and more. Plus, visit the Salzkammergut region to see the incredible lake-and-mountain scenery of the opening titles. Upgrade to include a 1-hour apple strudel cooking class and tastings in a quaint Alpine hut after your tour. Receive the personalized attention of a driver-guide on this private tour.


  • Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver
  • Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
  • Hotel pickup included
Start your experience with a pickup from your central Salzburg hotel or make your own way to a central pickup point. Then, hop aboard your comfortable, air-conditioned minivan with your expert driver-guide and start your Sound of Music tour.
Since this is a private tour, be sure to list any special interests you have on booking so your guide will know them in advance, and then, on the day, talk to your guide about any sights you want to see more or less of, so they can tailor your itinerary around your wishes.
While you travel, hear fascinating facts and trivia about the 1965 film and, to get into the musical mood, opt to hear some of the film’s famously melodic songs during your drive.
See Schloss Leopoldskron (Leopoldskron Castle), the lakeside house that acted as the Von Trapp home, and head for the 17th-century Schloss Hellbrunn (Hellbrunn Castle) to visit the reconstructed garden gazebo where Liesl and Rolf sang ' Sixteen Going on Seventeen.'
Next, drive into the idyllic Salzkammergut region of glassy lakes and Alpine mountains. Soak up the stunning scenery that formed the film’s opening scenes and see the romantic village of St Gilgen, home to the movie’s mountain railway.
Continue to the lakefront town of Mondsee to admire the yellow-painted church that hosted Maria’s wedding, and then return to Salzburg to discover two more iconic locations: the famous Mirabell Palace and Nonnberg Abbey, where the convent scenes were filmed.
Your 4-hour tour ends at the original starting point.
