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.

I would recommend it to those who truly enjoy the movie and want to know more about the real story. The trip took us to different important sites, some of which are quite far from the city center - I wouldn't be able to visit them myself. Our tour guide is a very friendly and charming grandpa who really knows the movie, the history, and other stories that I didn't know before. We also got to see the beautiful landscape around Salzburg during the bus drive. It was a very pleasant experience!

Absolutely fantastic experience. We saw all the spots from the movie and had the perfect amount of time at each stop. Our guide, Brigette was enthusiastic and engaging; she really went the extra mile to make sure we all had a great time. The scenery alone is so stunning you’d enjoy it even if you weren’t a fan of the film. Overall, a flawlessly organised tour. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

This was truly a lovely tour, the guide, David was excellent, we had traffic delays and he still continued to improvise and entertain the group. He was knowledgable and the whole tour flowed very well. Both David and the driver Ardue, were both professional and made the Tour a most enjoyable experience.
