To get to the Convent, you must climb (not every mountain, but it feels like it). When we first saw the Convent we were on a city tour and it was pointed out to us. Later we walked to it on our own from the...More

This is the oldest convent north of the alps. It was made famous by the Sound of Music. I think it is a short walk from the nearest parking. If you don’t have a car, there are two steep walks up to the convent; or...More

The climb was long and at the end, there was not much to see. Time would be better spent going to the fortress or the Dwarves Park

It's a nice, steep climb up the hill to reach the Abbey. We took a roundabout route getting here after visiting the Old Town. It was very quiet but we only walked around the outside since it was late in the day. The views of...More

There are 2 walks up to the Convent, one through residential area (recommended), and one through the Cathedral (which is definitely worth seeing, too). The gate to the Abbey was used in several scenes in the Sound of Music. The chapel, which is open to...More

Yes, it's a bit of a walk (OK, climb) up to the nunnery but so very worth it for the amazing altar (pay .50 euro in the box to the right side to get the lights to turn on). There also are some nice Roman...More

We found this on our own, looking it up while walking around. It's not very obvious, but really interesting once you get in. It's surprisingly easy to get into. Not a large cathedral or location but rich in history. We spent less than 30 minutes...More

We visited this place on our SOM tour, and it was great getting to see it in real life. It may not have been the site of the movie wedding, but Maria Von Tropp really lived here, and the real life wedding happened here. The...More

This review is of the outside only because the inside wasn't open on our visit. The attached picture are of the gate - reminiscent of the Sound of Music. Unlike what other reviews have said - this is NOT where the wedding took place. It...More
