The One and Only Sound of Music Tour Since 1967, Salzburg - 0900 departure

Follow in the Von Trapp family´s footsteps as you discover the breath-taking lakes and mountains as well as the historical side of Salzburg. Recreate Julie Andrews´ iconic opening scene and find out that Salzburg and the hills are still very much alive with the sound of music! Highlights - Feel the magic of Salzburg as the hills are brought to life with the sound of music - Visit the filming locations of the iconic musical, including Mirabell Palace, Residenz Square and Hellbrunn Palace - Journey to the Village of St Gilgen, where the opening credits were filmed Relive the making of the 1965 award winning movie 'The Sound of Music‘ in and around Salzburg as you take a tour of many of the famous filming locations and learn not only about the background story of the movie but also the history, culture, and the social and historical contexts of the area in the late 1930s. See the Mirabell Palace and gardens, where Maria and the children sing Do-Re-Mi and Residenz Square, which Maria crosses by bus from Nonnberg Abbey – where the real life Maria and Baron von Trapp were married in 1927 – on her way to the Trapp Villa singing I have confidence in me. The Rock Riding School is a particularly significant location as the real life Trapp family sang there before they fled Austria following the Nazi takeover. In the film, they sing Do-Re-Mi, Edelweiss and So Long, Farewell in a memorable scene. Leopoldskron Palace was used as the Von Trapp family home and while the gazebo used for the famous ‘I am 16 going on 17' scene was here in the film, it is actually at the Hellbrunn Palace. Head to the countryside around Salzburg to visit locations such as the village of St Gilgen on Lake Wolfgang, which features in the opening credits, and the church at Mondsee, where the wedding scene was shot.
