    What to Expect
    Let us show you where the hills are alive in the City of Salzburg and the beautiful Salzkammergut Region during this unique private custom Sound of Music tour in Salzburg from Vienna. You will not only hear the real story about the von Trapp family, but also some interesting facts about the movie locations and set in Salzburg.
    Your professional guide will take you to the Mirabell Gardens, Schloss Leopoldkron, Schloss Hellbrunn, the Lake Fuschlsee and Wolfgangsee in the Salzkammergut and to the wedding cathedral in Mondsee. Relax and listen to the original music of the movie, while we take you towards the most breathtaking landscapes of the Salzkammergut.
    Your 4-hour private tour will stop at the following 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. The castle will be visited from outside only.
    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. The Gazebo will be visited from outside only.
    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. As they Abbey is still private property, we will see it from outside only (quick photo stop).
    Salzkammergut & Lake Wolfgangsee
    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.
    We will visit the Wedding Cathedral also inside.
    Please note: As this is a private tour, you can decide the amount of time you want to stay at each location, or even take a longer break at one of your favorite locations. At Mondsee, you will have more time to visit the wedding cathedral and taste the best Apfelstrudel in town.
