What You Can Expect

The Original Sound of Music Tour in Salzburg

Sound of Music Gazebo and the setting for the famous "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" song

Meet your guide in Mirabellplatz in central Salzburg and hop aboard your coach. Take off through the city, with the film’s soundtrack playing to set the mood. Sing along with the lyrics to ‘Edelweiss,’ ‘Do-Re-Mi’ and ‘My Favorite Things’ as you pass famous locations featured in the film. (See the Itinerary section for a complete list of locations.) Marvel at the city’s architecture and see the Lake District, one of the most impressive regions in the heart of Austria.

Continue to the charming town of Mondsee, where you will have free time to explore the setting of the film’s wedding at the Mondsee Cathedral. Wander the streets at your leisure, stopping for a delicious slice of crisp apple strudel or perusing the local shops.

Your tour will conclude with drop-off at your original departure point in central Salzburg.


The Sound of Music Film Locations in Salzburg:

  • Mirabell Gardens - The Mirabell Gardens were laid out in the 18th century. Maria and the children were seen dancing around the statue of Pegasus, the winged horse, and throughout the gardens singing 'Do-Re-Mi.'
  • Leopoldskron Castle - The front side of the castle was used as the Trapp family home, the children were boating on the Leopoldskron Lake and fell into the water. The Venetian room was copied from the castle and used as the ballroom.
  • Hellbrunn Castle - This hunting castle was built in the early 17th century by Prince-Archbishop Markus Sittikus. In the gardens the glass pavillion was reconstructed for the pleasure of those fans still returning after 30 years.
  • Nonnberg Abbey - Nonnberg Abbey is the oldest convent in the German speaking part of Europe. Maria was a novice there. The baron and Maria were married here in 1927. The scenes for the movie made here include the opening with the nuns going to Mass and Maria coming too late.
  • St Gilgen and Lake Wolfgang - Scenery shown at the beginning of the movie was filmed at Lake Fuschl on the way to St Gilgen. Like the Mozart family, visitors from all over the world appreciate the beautiful village in the Salzkammergut.
  • Wedding Church Mondsee - Mondsee Cathedral was used as the location for Maria and the Baron's wedding in the film.

Please note: The coach will visit all film locations listed above. You will get off the bus at Leopoldskron Castle, Hellbrunn Castle, St Gilgen and Lake Wolfgang and Mondsee.

Most interesting and very enjoyable. Excellent guide and driver. A great way to see Salzburg and a wonderful opportunity to see the beautiful scenery of the lakes and mountains in the countryside. Mondsee and the church were amazing. So glad we took the tour.

Great tour and great guide. He told us things about the movie we didn't know and also about the city in general. It was evident he loved the movie as much as we do and it showed in his presentation. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves the Sound of Music. Thank you for a great day!

An entertaining, relaxed and very informative way to see many of the Sound of Music sights. A good way to see the sights beyond Salzburg as you are taken to more film locations outside Salzburg than inside the city itself.

My friends and I did this tour in April and it was so much fun! We took the train from Vienna early in the morning and walked to the tour meet-up point which was easy to find. The tour guide was excellent, very entertaining, funny, and he told us interesting stories about the Sound of Music history and filming. There was plenty of time to take pictures at our stops. It was snowing during the trip, which made our Salzburg experience even more special. I highly recommend this tour!

This tour was excellent. Though I am not personally a fan of the Sound of Music, my wife had a smile on her face the entire trip. The guide was both informative and highly entertaining. He made the tour fun. You do not have to be a fan of the movie to enjoy this tour. I highly recommend it.

Fantastic tour of the sites from Sound of Music. Barbara was a perfect guide, with knowledge and humor. We felt a bit rushed though at each stop.
