Viator Exclusive: 'The Sound of Music' Private Tour with Breakfast at Schloss Leopoldskron

Take a photo in front of Mondsee Parish Church!

Your tour will begin with pickup from your Salzburg hotel, where you’ll meet your private guide and journey by minivan to Schloss Leopoldskron. Considered one of Austria’s most dazzling examples of Rococo architecture, the castle is featured in The Sound of Music and will host your late-morning breakfast, which includes eggs, cured meat, fresh fruit, yoghurt and more.

After breakfast, travel to the 17th-century palace of Schloss Hellbrunn. Hear the history of the Von Trapp family from your guide, and see the gazebo where Liesl von Trapp famously sang 'Sixteen Going on Seventeen.'

Continue to the neighborhood of Aigen, home to the real-life Von Trapp family. Take a tour inside Villa Trapp and see where the family choir rehearsed.

Venture to Salzkammergut, a region characterized by stunning mountain landscapes and Alpine lakes. Visit the town of St Gilgen to spot the Schafbergbahn, the railway appearing in the film, and then continue to Mondsee. Pause to admire the town’s crown jewel, the church which hosted the film’s famous wedding scene.

After six hours of sightseeing, history and culture, you will be returned to your Salzburg hotel.

David was great. He took us to and explained all the sites. It was a memorable and great day! Thanks David for making it so complete. You enhanced our knowledge of the Sound of Music immensely!

Driver was great and customized the tour to our interests . The only criticism is that the breakfast was a very basic buffet and half the dishes were empty by the time we got there

This tour for our family was all that we expected it to be and more. Our tour guide, Peter, was amazing! He was friendly, professional, and knowledgable. He helped make our day a memorable one. The included breakfast at Schloss Leopoldskron was delicious. The private tour does cost more, but for a once-in-a-lifetime tour with our kids and their wives, this was most definitely the way to go. It's much better to see things up close and personal...not from across the lake, for example. We highly recommend this tour!!

We spent 3 weeks in Europe and this was easily the most wonderful experience we had during the entire trip. We were a bit concerned that what we would receive would match up with the price but the day far exceed our expectations. We originally booked this tour because my grandmother moves very slowly and uses a wheelchair for any distance walking, and we were concerned about keeping up with a big tour group; however, if you can squeeze it into your budget this is the best tour ever.

Starting the day off at Leopoldskron Palace was amazing, made better by all the people telling us that it was closed to the public and none of the tours went there, the closest we would get was the other other side of the lake. Seeing the amazing rococo building that Max saved just really set the mood for the day.

We had a list of must-see places that I had informed the company of before hand and also shared with our tour guide at the beginning of the day and they were 100% accommodating, I was concerned because communication before the tour was a little challenging but I don't know if that was from the viator end or Panoramic a Tours in Salzburg, but it didn't matter because they had all my messages and planned accordingly.

Our tour guide, who's name I can not remember now, was fantastic! He is a a Salzburg native and his knowledge of the area was impressive, so along with the history of the movie and the real history of the family I learned quite a bit about the history of Salzburg and Austria as he was able to answer any question we threw at him. The entire day our guide was generous with information, funny, personable and engaging. Our guide ended the tour with a sing along of sound of music songs on our way back down the alps, the perfect end to a perfect day.

Top rated! Had a lovely time at the Scloss Leopoldskron and had a surprise visit and music from Elizabeth Von Trapp the granddaughter of the Baron at their former home! Tom, our guide, was first rate! Very well worth the time and fare!
