The English-speaking guide not only shows you the highlights of the film, but also the historical and architectural landmarks in the city, as well as a part of the picturesque lake district.

Highlights

  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
  • Popular choice with kids
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
Relax and listen to the soundtrack or sing along to the famous songs and lyrics including 'My Favourite Things,' 'Do-Re-Mi,' 'Edelweiss,' 'Climb Ev'ry Mountain,' 'Sixteen Going on Seventeen,' 'The Lonely Goatherd' and, of course, the glorious title song, 'The Sound of Music.'

The 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 - Mondsee Cathedral was used as the location for Maria and the Baron's wedding in the film.

Please note: 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.
