Immerse yourself into the world of the Trapp family

Start off with a walk through the Mirabell Gardens, where Maria and the children sang “Do Re Mi”. Maria was already singing in the shadows of the impressive Hohensalzburg fortress when she was a novice at the Stift Nonnberg. Take a short detour to the Leopoldskron Palace, which was used in the film as the Trapp-Villa (the palace can also be reached by taking bus No. 25, or by walking via the Hellbrunner Alle). From here, continue to the Hellbrunn Palace, where you will see the famous Gazebo which was used for romantic scenes in the film. In the Salzburg district of Aigen, you will find the original Villa Trapp and learn more about the inhabitants.

Away from the city

The castle of Hohenwerfen, in Werfen, is not only one of the most beautiful and well preserved castles in SalzburgerLand, but was also the film location for “Where Eagles Dare” with Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood in 1968.

After taking in the fantastic views from the castle gardens it is possible to take the scenic mountain route by bus to St. Gilgen and Mondsee, where you will find the parish church in which the wedding of Baron and Maria von Trapp was conducted. A perfect ending to a perfect day.
