Relive with us the true story of the von Trapp family which was filmed as the “Sound of Music” in and around Salzburg. The tour which has been Salzburg’s most popular tour for over 35 years, is a combination of both this historical city and the breathtaking Salzkammergut - Lakes and Mountains area - also a famous musical and cultural centre.
Our company was involved in the making of the film back in 1965 and today our experienced tour guides are proud to show guests from around the world where this famous movie was filmed. Salzburg was of course the home of the real Trapp Family and this tour lets you see many of the original locations making it a truly memorable experience not to be missed during your visit. First hand information with our most unique Sound of Music Tour.
