The Sound of Music Film Locations in Salzburg:

• Mirabell Gardens - The Mirabell Gardens were laid out in the 18th century. Maria and the children were seen dancing around the statue of Pegasus, the winged horse, and throughout the gardens singing 'Do-Re-Mi.'
• Leopoldskron Castle - The front side of the castle was used as the Trapp family home, the children were boating on the Leopoldskron Lake and fell into the water. The Venetian room was copied from the castle and used as the ballroom.
• Hellbrunn Castle - This hunting castle was built in the early 17th century by Prince-Archbishop Markus Sittikus. In the gardens the glass pavillion was reconstructed for the pleasure of those fans still returning after 30 years.
• Nonnberg Abbey - Nonnberg Abbey is the oldest convent in the German speaking part of Europe. Maria was a novice there. The baron and Maria were married here in 1927. The scenes for the movie made here include the opening with the nuns going to Mass and Maria coming too late.
• St Gilgen and Lake Wolfgang - Scenery shown at the beginning of the movie was filmed at Lake Fuschl on the way to St Gilgen. Like the Mozart family, visitors from all over the world appreciate the beautiful village in the Salzkammergut.
• Wedding Church Mondsee - Mondsee Cathedral was used as the location for Maria and the Baron's wedding in the film.
Please note: The coach will visit all film locations listed above. You will get off the bus at Leopoldskron Castle, Hellbrunn Castle, St Gilgen and Lake Wolfgang and Mondsee.

    Great trip. The guide and driver were fun, knowledgeable and friendly. The tour took in all the great sights of the film. Also the music played was at the right point on the trip and we enjoyed singing along.
    Overall outstanding.

    Highly recommend this tour. It doesn’t take up your entire day so you can have time after to walk around or relax before dinner. Our tour guide Antonio was great. Very knowledgeable about where and how the Sound of a music was shot in and outside of Salzburg.

    Enthusiastic guide and she and the bus driver worked well together. I enjoyed the tour.
    That’s enough

    4 Hours well spent fun and insight into the wonderful film that most of us have seen many many times. Ivo the driver and April the guide were great. Very cheesy, but it added to the fun. One thing, that I do think is necessary to relay to April, the guide is, that she omitted to inform us that Von Trapp’s first wife was English. This was not mentioned, and I overheard another guide. An important factor I think. Any way, great afternoon was had by all. No need to do again. Laura Li

    Relived the nostalgic moments from my child hood when I watched the film number of times and sang every song ... later taught all the songs to my children! It was great to visit the places where the film was shot :)

    While this is a pretty seamless tour that clearly sees a lot of tourists, I felt a bit let down that we didn't get to go up to the gates of the house itself. The best we did was a drive by it the next road over, and the rainy weather meant it was impossible to take photos through the bus windows. The back of the house was filmed at Leopold's Palace and while we got a good view of it from across the lake, it would have been nice to actually visit it. We did get to see the garden where a lot of the Do-Re-Mi song sequence was shot, but because it was winter, it was closed and we couldn't walk through it (only past it). Overall, it was a bit of a disappointing experience due to the fact I saw no advertising that the gardens would be closed or that we wouldn't actually stop at the location of the house. Probably save this trip for spring through summer if you want to ensure you can visit more of the places.
