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.

April was a wonderful guide! She was fun and enthusiastic. She knew her material and made everyone laugh. We had a great time seeing the SOM locations and hearing inside information about the film. The lake region away from Salzburg was also stunning. Well worth the ticket price.

The tour was excellent and so well managed. We were a full bus and our tour guide and us driver were lovely throughout the experience. They made sure we were comfortable, taken care of and everything about the sound of music was very well explained. A very positive and wholesome experience

From start to finish this tour was fantastic. Not only did we learn about the film we also were told so much about Salzburg and the surrounding area. The snow fall made every photo look fabulous and we will remember the morning for many years to come. Thank you
