Original Sound of Music Private Tour

    What to Expect
    Begin your 4-hour tour with pickup from your hotel in Salzburg or meet at a central pickup point. Hop aboard your minivan with your local driver and guide and take off on your original 'Sound of Music' experience. While you travel, learn fun facts and behind-the-scenes stories about the classic musical and sing along with some of the beloved songs playing in the background.

    Travel toward the 17th-century Schloss Hellbrunn (Hellbrunn Castle) to visit the reconstructed garden gazebo where Liesl and Rolf sang 'Sixteen Going on Seventeen.'

    Afterward, drive to the stunning region of Salzkammergut and marvel at the Alpine mountains and glassy lakes featured in the opening scenes. Pass the charming village of St. Gilgen, home to the movie’s mountain railway.

    Next, spot the yellow church in Mondsee where Maria’s wedding famously took place. Then, return to Salzburg to discover two more iconic locations: the Mirabell Palace and Nonnberg Abbey, where the convent scenes were filmed.

    Your tour ends at the original starting point. Since this is a private tour, be sure to list any special interests you have at the time of booking so that your guide will know them in advance, and then, on the day, talk to your guide about any sights you want to see more or less of, so they can tailor your itinerary around your wishes.

    See the Itinerary section below for details about the cooking school upgrade.

    It is possible. You can directly talk to tour operator. Private tours cost more, but at the same time flexibility is more too.
