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 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.

Our tour guide was great. We got a rainy day and he really really tried to bring the sunshine. Fun facts, nice dry bus, lots of sound of music, it was a fun drive around town plus a longer drive to a nearby town for one special location. Very enjoyable. What more could they do with one movie?… I would suggest more places to get down and go to- rather than pointing at them- but several were on private roads so bring a pen and pencil to note the locations and come back on your own tomorrow! Lol.

My wife dragged me to this sound of music tour, but I have to admit that this was quite a fun experience. Obviously it helps if you are a fan of the movie, but even someone who has not watched the movie like me can appreciate the terrific views, some great nature pics and the movie trivia that comes along. The guide did his best to keep us entertained and he succeeded. I would definitely do this again.

This tour was my favourite part from our trip to Austria. It was very well organised. The places we visited during the tour were phenomenal and unforgettable. Even if you have no idea of the movie, you will still enjoy the beautiful scenery and places visited during this tour. Highly recommend this to everyone visiting Salzburg.
