The Original Sound of Music Tour® 2020/2021
Come and join us on a wonderful ride with breath-taking views of the landscape where the opening scenes of the movie The Sound of Music were filmed - not only in the city of Salzburg! Relax and listen to the Original Sound of Music soundtrack. You will not just see lots of highlights of the movie "The Sound of Music", but also get to know historical and architectural landmarks in the city as well as in the Lake District area.
You will certainly have heard about Mirabell Gardens where the song "Do-Re-Mi" was filmed. After or before joining the tour, we warmly recommend to see the gardens for yourself and explore the Pegasus Fountain as well as the Do-Re-Mi steps.
You will have a photo stop at the lake where the famous boating scene was filmed. You will see the Captain's backyard and private palace gardens.
Hellbrunn Palace, Gazebo
Visit the gardens of Hellbrunn Palace and find the gazebo which was rebuilt especially for the fans of the movie - you certainly will remember the song "16 going on 17" and the kissing scene of Maria and Baron von Trapp.
You will have a photo stop at the leg of the mountain, to get a view at Nonnberg Abbey which is still an active convent today.
This is where "real" Maria was a novice and where she and Baron von Trapp got married in real life. The Abbey does not allow visits within its walls, but you are invited to walk up to the front gate to their Gothic church for a visit or for church services after our tour.
Salzburg Lake District
After your film-location tour within the town of Salzburg, you will drive out into the lake district, passing Lake Fuschl and Lake Wolfgang, where panorama shots and scenes of the picnic were filmed. Enjoy the wonderful view down on to St. Gilgen and Lake Wolfgang!
In Mondsee you have the chance to see the famous church, where the wedding of Maria and Baron von Trapp was filmed in the movie. Afterwards you will have a little break to explore this little town by yourself.
