Overview:

Tour Salzburg and enjoy breathtaking views of the countryside as you visit locations used in the filming of "The Sound of Music." You’ll hear songs from the original soundtrack and discover the historical landmarks of this fabled city.

Description:

On this half-day tour you'll relive scenes from one of the most popular movies of all time. Visit the locations used during the filming of The Sound of Music in Salzburg and its surrounding countryside. During the tour, you’ll also hear songs from the original soundtrack.

Your knowledgeable English-speaking guide will show you the architectural and historical landmarks of the city and the picturesque Lake District. You’ll visit Leopoldskron Palace, a place whose exterior was used as the Trapp family home and where the children were seen boating on the lake and jumping into the water.

Maria was a novice at Nonnberg Abbey, the oldest convent in German-speaking Europe, and your next stop. The St. Gilgen and Lake Wolfgang scenes shown at the beginning of the movie were actually filmed at Lake Fuschl, on the way to St. Gilgen, which you'll also see today.

The wedding scene was filmed at Mondsee Cathedral, a buttery yellow-and-white edifice where you'll stop on the tour. Maria, led by Liesl, walked down the aisle to meet the baron in front of the stairs of the main altar.

After dropping you off in Salzburg at the end of the tour you can visit Mirabell Gardens, located just opposite the tour terminal. Maria and the children were seen dancing through the Gardens singing Do-Re-Mi.

  • Rating: 4 “A fun thing to do”

    Reviewed by Liza from Fort Lee, United States on October 19, 2014 Both our guide and driver made sure we were entertained en route to our destination. They had funny skits while going from one part of the tour to the next. I did expect to see more of the locations from the movie but nonetheless was satisfied with the whole trip.


  • Rating: 4 “Lots of Fun”

    Reviewed by Annamarie from APO, Germany on September 22, 2014 This sort of tour would be hard to do on your own and was perfect with a group. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun was had by all.


  • Rating: 3 “Good...but could have been been much better.”

    Reviewed by Laura from Thornhill, Canada on August 4, 2014 Being a huge fan of the music/movie/history of the Sound of Music, I was disappointed that our tour guide was not at all passionate about it. Our guide expressed that he had not even heard of the Sound of Music until he moved to Salzburg! Fortunately, the tour destinations themselves were wonderful...and my husband and I have wonderful photos from the day. Please try to hire guides that are passionate about the tours they are providing (or can pretend that they are)!


  • Rating: 5 “Amusing, stunning scenery and not too cheesey!”

    Reviewed by Jennifer from Salisbury, United Kingdom on July 23, 2014 Worth doing


  • Rating: 3 “Nice 4 hour trip.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Neuried, Germany on June 10, 2014 It was ok. Wasn't the best, wasn't the worst. I know the movie, but the singalong in the bus was horrible. The group didn't want to sing and the guide did all to get us singing. The information on the tour was ok. Peter was not as funny as described in other post - but i am not sure if there are 2 Peters. The younger guide on the other tour seems to be crazy but fun. Old Peter did his best to entertain and inform us. Well done!
