Take a Sound of Music Tour in Salzburg

Salzburg may be home to Mozart and all things baroque, but for an astounding 70% of overseas visitors The Sound of Music remains the primary reason for travel to the city. A must-do for any fan of the movie is one of Salzburg’s popular Sound of Music Tours.

Perhaps somewhat surprising is that many Austrians have not even watched The Sound of Music and don't fully realise the enormous impact the film still holds across the world today. In Salzburg, however, the word has long been out, and nearly all of the city tour companies now offer their version of The Sound of Music Tour. See your favourite things from the movie as you snap a selfie at Mirabell Gardens and the Pegasus Fountain where Maria danced with the children, see the lake where the unforgettable boating scene took place, or sneak a kiss with your special someone at the “16 going on 17” gazebo at Hellbrunn Palace. There are also stops at Nonnberg Convent where Maria lived as a young nun and the wedding setting of Mondsee Church. Between stops, you’ll be invited to sing along with your enthusiastic guide as you enjoy this comprehensive 4-hour tour which not only highlights movie locations and sites, but also introduces the historical and architectural gems of Salzburg and pretty views of the Lake District. Several companies run tours, so while their exact itineraries/sites may vary, the experience will surely be a lasting Sound of Music memory!
