Know More about this tour

Be transported back in time on this daylong tour designed for fans of The Sound of Music. Begin the day at 9am when your private guide and driver pick you up from your Salzburg hotel. Start off with a Salzburg city tour, including stops at Leopoldskron Palace, which was used as the von Trapp family's home in the movie. Take a photo in the pavilion at Hellbrunn Palace, where the famous gazebo scene was filmed.

Next, drive past the German border to the Sound of Music Meadow, where Julie Andrews twirled and sang "The Hills Are Alive (with the Sound of Music)." Dive deeper into the area's history with a visit to the "Obersalzberg." Located at an elevation of 3000 feet, this is the former mountain residence of Adolf Hitler. 

From that historical point, you'll have the opportunity to purchase access to the Eagle's Nest via special busses and an elevator. Once you've reached the Eagle's Nest, enjoy unparalleled views of the Bavarian Alps, the King's Lake (Koenigssee), and the surrounding area of Salzburg. On your return trip from the Eagle's Nest to Salzburg, drive through the Lake District. Pass the Wies Valley, Fuschl, and St. Gilgen — where Mozart's mother was born.  

Enjoy a view out over Lake Wolfgang and the Schafberg Mountain, which you'll recognize from the movie's picnic scene. Your last stop is at Mondsee — you'll recognize the church where Maria and the Baron were married. The tour concludes in the evening, when you're dropped off in Salzburg at your hotel or another location of your choice.

  • Our guide Manfred was amazing! He was very flexible and took us places that most tourist don't see! We did not go to Eagles nest as originally planned but we got to see it from afar but did not have to take 2-3 hours out of our day to see it He was very personable and very knowledgeable! He was by far the best guide we have ever had! Highly Reccomend. Thank you Manfred! Your friends from Kansas City !!
