The “Sound of Music” location tour stops
It goes without saying that Salzburg’s Mirabell Gardens are a permanent feature of the tour, as is Hohensalzburg Fortress, which is another highlight of Salzburg’s historic Old Town. It’s here that Maria sings the famous “Do-Re-Mi” song with her Trapp protégés at the Pegasus Fountain and on the steps leading directly to the Mirabell Gardens.
Then it’s off on the Original Sound of Music Tour Bus, from which tour participants can take a look at Nonnberg Abbey, to the idyllically placed Leopoldskron Palace. The lake on which the palace sits should be well known to all fans, as it’s where the famous boat scene took place. It’s then followed by one of the tour’s real highlights, a visit to the gazebo in the Hellbrunn Garden. The pavilion was renovated and made accessible especially for the “Sound of Music”. So, it’s absolutely perfect for taking a photo, in that very spot in which Maria and Baron von Trapp’s kiss scene once took place. In the Salzburg Lake District visitors can expect breath-taking views of the Fuschlsee and Wolfgangsee lakes, landmarks that repeatedly assume scenic lead roles in the “Sound of Music”. The grand finale is the church in Mondsee where Maria and Baron von Trapp got married, and you can use it as your base from which to explore Mondsee.
The “Original Sound of Music Tour” is an absolute highlight for all “Sound of Music” fans upon visiting Salzburg and it’s absolutely not to be missed. Seeing the original movie locations in just one day is guaranteed to make the eyes of all “Sound of Music” fans eyes light up.
