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. 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.

Our tour was with Panorama tour group with guide (and driver) Anne Marie. She was fabulous and gave extensive history of the sites as it related to the film and other interesting historical facts. We truly couldn’t have asked for a better experience and better weather. Since the pick up point is in the Thursday open market, it added to the experience. In the passenger van we adults all masked up. My young daughter (Age 3) was able to keep interested the whole time, only struggled the last 15 mins or so, which is remarkable after a four hour tour. I recommend bringing healthy on the go snacks and water (to be eaten outside the van) because there are not many food/water options due to the pandemic. Otherwise, we had plenty of bathroom breaks and LOADS of information. We also had a small group of 5 adults and one child. This company has been doing these tours since the movie first became popular and also received the local seal of approval from my hotel staff. Thumbs up!

Excellent tour. Highly recommended. The sights are just breathtaking. The information about the film and the real family are so interesting. If your a fan of the film, it’s a must do tour. If your a fan of Salzburg and surrounding area it’s a must do tour. Loved every minute, a dream come true for me.

Because of the small group from 4 different countries it took a while to lighten up. Leopold was great and the added history of Salzburg was fantastic as it was our first time here. I will be back and will recommend the trip to others who like the Sound of Music but also as to get to know the area and ifs history.
