Overview
The original The Sound of Music tour is the top choice for fans of the iconic musical, visiting all the most memorable filming locations from the movie. Admire magnificent views of the Austrian Lake District; visit Mirabell Gardens, Mondsee Cathedral, and Lake Wolfgang; and sing along with the soundtrack on the tour bus.
Highlights
  • Stunning views of the Lake District, Lake Wolfgang, and Mirabell Gardens
  • Visit film locations including Leopoldskron Castle and Nonnberg Abbey
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • Hassle-free round-trip transport from Salzburg
What to Expect
Make your own way to Mirabellplatz in downtown Salzburg to meet your guide. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned coach, set out on a scenic drive through the rolling countryside of the Austrian Lake District. As you drive to sites such as Leopoldskron Castle, Hellbrunn Castle, and Nonnberg Abbey, listen to the film’s soundtrack on the tour bus, and sing along to classics like "Do-Re-Mi" and "My Favorite Things." Jump out to admire the views and take photos at Mirabell Gardens, where Maria and the children sang "Do-Re-Mi"; see the gazebo where "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" was shot; and stroll around Lake Wolfgang, where the famous opening credits were shot. The final stop of the day is in Mondsee, where you’ll have a chance to visit the beautiful Mondsee Cathedral, where Maria and Captain von Trapp were married, and enjoy some free time to shop for souvenirs. On return to Salzburg, your tour ends back at the departure point.

This was my third time doing this tour as I am a SoM tragic but unfortunately this time it wasn’t great. Our guide, April, whilst showing enthusiasm and energy made a few inappropriate jokes and injected far too many Americanisms into the whole experience. Maybe it just wasn’t

Thank you for your honest feedback regarding our Original Sound of Music Tour®. We have read your comments with great interest and regret that you left our coach this time somewhat disappointed. Our guides try their best to create an unique and entertaining atmosphere for all our clients. Although our native American guides are very popular among our guests, taste in humor and expectations may vary. According to our evaluations and excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, we do receive myriads of positive feedback on the running of the tour as well as on our guides. Still, we are sorry that you had not the same personal perception of this tour. Regarding day light: during wintertime it gets dark around 05:00 pm, so the last part of the tour is in the dark. However the lights in Mondsee especially during the Christmas/Advent create a very special atmosphere. This also applies to the Mirabell Garden being illuminated in various colors during the evening. Nevertheless if you prefer to see the country side and the city at daylight, we recommend booking the morning tour at 09:15 h Thank you again for bringing your experience to our attention. We would be happy if we could welcome you again someday. Kind regards from Salzburg, Salzburg Panorama Tours, Customer care
