This tour takes you passed many of the famous locations used in the movie including also stops at Leopoldskron Palace, the Gazebo at Hellbrunn Palace, the area of St. Gilgen on the Lake Wolfgangsee plus Mondsee where the wedding church is situated.

Mirabell Garden

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 "De-Re-Mi".

Leopoldskron Castle

The front side of this castle was used as the Trapp family home, the children were boating on the lake and fell into the water. The Venetian room was copied from this 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 pavillon was reconstructed for the pleasure of those fans still returning after more than 35 years.

Nonnberg Abbey

Nonnberg Abbey is the oldest convent in the german speaking part of Europe. Maria was a novice here. 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

The former benedictine abbey dating back to the 12th century is one of the biggest gothic churches in Austria with wonderful baroque interieur.

The guides provided in Salzburg and Innsbruck were world class. Highly recommend the Hotel Sacher and all of the tours suggested in both cities, both very memorable and enjoyable.

My husband and I had a jam-packed itinerary on our 37 day European adventure; Panorama Tours & Travel provided exceptional service! Every arrival/transfer (to and from airport and trains) was right on time: friendly drivers went out of their way to acclimate us to our surroundings and help schlep luggage. The private tours and guides were phenomenal: Dr. Christine Horvath conveyed a wealth of knowledge about Vienna, the Wachau Danube Valley, Krems-Durnstein, the Abbey Melk, etc. Mag. Martina Gyuroka was charming on our 1/2 day walking tour in Salzburg. And our favorite guide of all was Lisa, who took us an an all day adventure to Halstatt , thru stunningly beautiful mountain villages in the "Salzkammergut"-Lake District. Lisa greeted us at our hotel the second day wearing a dirndl; such a sweet gesture after we had been chatting earlier about family and local traditions, and also directed me to a shop in Salzburg where I purchased the best-locoing raincoat ever-the "Derbe"!
