Full description

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. During the tour, you’ll also hear songs from the original soundtrack. 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.

Over all, excellent! Worth every penny!! Peter, our guide, is very entertaining. Didn’t know the story of the real Vontrapp family, glad Peter told us about it. Very interesting! Salzburg itself is beautiful. The weather today was nice so we enjoyed it even more. Breathtaking view even from the bus. Just make sure you come 30mins early so you seat by the window to take photos and enjoy the trip even more. I’ve watched the movie more than 5x already, but joining the tour made me love sound of music even more. If given the chance to come back to Salzburg, I would love to join the tour again! Thank you xxx

The tour was absolutely amazing! I am a huge sound for music fan and could not think of a better way to spend my day! Our driver and guide were amazing, the guide especially was so funny and clearly loved sound of music also! Even if your not a big fan of the film, the scenery and stops were amazing. It was also a good way to get to see a local town outside Salzburg.

Great experience driving to the SOM film locations, most fun if you're familiar with the fim. Our guide David was very knowledgeable about the film production and the places we passed on the drive. He managed the time well and to get everyone to sing along as we drove. A must-do if you're in Salzburg for the first time!
