🎥 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.

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..
