Full 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. Let your guide show you the architectural and historical landmarks of the city and the picturesque Lake District. See 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.

Very fun to see the sights of Salzburg through the lens of the Sound of Music! Only complaint- most of the stops seemed rushed. Jump off the bus, few minutes of discussion by the tour guide about how the site tied into the movie, few minutes for pictures, back on the bus. Still a very fun tour with lots of singing!

Our tour guide, Petr, was fantastic. Entertaining and informative. Bus was very comfortable with selected clips from movie showing throughout the trip. It was a bit odd that many stores and shops in Salzburg & Mondsee did not accept credit cards - that would have been very helpful to know before leaving.

We went on the tour as a family of three (1 adult and 2 kids-9&12). Both kids were familiar with the movie and all the songs. In addition, we watched the film again before the tour, which really helped in terms of appreciating the locations that the tour took us to. We appreciated many little stories and histories that our tour guide (Brigette) told on the tour, which made us enjoy the tour even more. 4 hours were a good length, especially for the younger ones. It is such a wonderful experience to have while in Salzburg.
