Tour Itinerary:

The Mirabell Gardens

Shown in many scenes including where Maria and the children were seen dancing around the statue of Pegasus, the winged horse and throughout the gardens singing “Do-Re-Mi”.

The Gazebo/Hellbrunn Palace

Where Rolf and Liesl sang “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” and Maria and the Baron sang “Something Good”. It is now situated within the gardens of this hunting palace, built in the first half of the 17th century. The Gazebo gives you a chance to recreate one of the movies famous scenes!

Palace of Leopoldskron

This historical 18th Century palace and its grounds provided many locations for the movie including the lake where the boating scene took place, the terrace was the place where the family drank ‘Pink Lemonade’ with the Baroness Schröder plus many other scenes.

Nonnberg Abbey

This historical abbey founded in the year 714 was used both in the movie and the true story. In the movie the Abbey was seen many times including when the children came to the gate to ask Maria to return to their home and from where the family tried to escape at the end of the movie. Maria and the Baron were married here in 1927.

St. Gilgen/Lake Wolfgang

This picturesque area was featured in the opening sequence of the movie. The village of St Gilgen (Mozart’s mother was born here) on the northwest side of the Lake Wolfgang is situated directly across from the famous Schafberg mountain - also seen in the movie!

Church of Mondsee

The Sound of Music Wedding Church. This historical church of Mondsee was the location of the movie wedding between Maria and the Baron. Inside this wonderful church Maria walked down the aisle to meet the Baron at the altar.
