    What to Expect
    You will learn many interesting facts about the Trapp family and take a stroll through the same scenes in Salzburg Old City you can see in the movie.

    Your unforgettable trip begins in the idyllic sceneries of the Austrian Alps, where you will visit the famous church of Mondsee, chosen by the film director as an ideal location for Maria’s wedding setting. On the way to Salzburg you will not stop taking pictures of the beautiful lakes and peaks. You will enjoy the fresh air in the Hellbrunn Park, where the famous Gazebo has been still keeping the secret of the first Liesl’s kiss.  You will see the Nonnberg nonnery, the oldest in Europe that became famous thanks to voice of Maria Kutschera.  Her story served as inspiration for the Sound of Music movie. You will take a stroll through the magnificent Mirabell Gardens, where Maria and children danced around the Pegasus Fountain while singing the song «Do-re-mi». Then you will see the picturesque „Hourse Pond“, shot in the film as well. Enjoy the chilling of the Residence Square with the famous Residence Fountain, the most famous fountain in the city, chosen for the «I have confidence in me» song. You will take picture of the Summer Riding School, where the Trapp family took part in the world-famous Salzburg music festival and enjoy the silence of the oldest cemetery in Austria by the Sankt Peter´s Monastery. Here the Trapp family finds a secure hiding place before escaping to Italy.

    The tour is conducted in English language only.

    This was a fun experience. It lasted the entire day. We were able to see all the big sites from the movie and a lot of Salzburg, Lake Mondsee, and more! If you go, just bring an umbrella or a poncho. It rained for about an hour and a half.

    This is a great tour. Sound of music fans will love it. The only negative I can say is, we stop at 10am and can have a quick snack, then by the time you get to Salzburg it’s 130-2, and you go straight to a 2 hour walking tour. So it’s 4 before you can have lunch. The tour is
