On this favourite private tour you will learn about “The Sound of Music” film locations in and around Salzburg and visit the Austrian Lake District known as the Salzkammergut – which was and is setting for world famous movies (eg The Sound of Music) and operettas (eg The White Horse Inn). We will also visit St.Gilgen and St.Wolfgang villages. The Salzkammergut is one of Austria’s most beautiful regions.
You will see the most important film locations from the movie “The Sound of Music” in Salzburg city. Many of them are also very important historic sights like Leopodskron Palace and views of Nonnberg Abbey from where Maria was sent to the Trapp Family. The Hellbrunn Palace, where the glass pavilion “Gazebo” has been relocated to (‘I am 16 going on 17’). At the end of the tour you visit the Mirabell Palace and Gardens, where Maria and the children sang ‘Do-Re-Mi’.
Then we will head for the Salzkammergut, the Austrian Lake District
Gentle hills and high mountains, rugged rocks, mountain lakes and picturesque villages; a breathtaking view from high above St. Gilgen over Lake Wolfgangsee (also famous for the Mozart family) – it is indeed not surprising that this wonderful part of Austria became world famous.
After spending some time in St.Gilgen we head to the village of St.Wolfgang with a choice of taking the romantic boat ride across the lake or being driven by your guide. At St.Wolfgang you will then have the choice of lunch in a traditional restaurant, or leisure time to explore the village.
From St.Wolfgang we will take the Romantic Road towards Mondsee (our last lake with its colourful village) where you can recall Maria and Captain von Trapp’s wedding steps in St.Michael church. Depending on the tour schedule there may be some time for a coffee with traditional Apple Strudel.
On the ride back to Salzburg you can enjoy the scenery while singing the songs.
