We enjoyed our visit to this church as part of the Sound of Music Tour. Even though we are not die hard fans of the movie, it was enjoyable to see the interior of the church. There is also a gift shop in the front of the church with many appealing souvenirs.

We visited this church as part of a Sound of Music tour. It is full of gilt and is beautiful. Lots to see, but most visitors are only interested because this is where Maria and the Captain married in the movie.

A large church in Mondsee, with large altar. As I visited it in Advent, had the oppotunity to see nice nativity scene. Besides being a cultural monument, it is known for the weding scene from the film "The Sound of Music".

We visited here as part of the Sound of Music tour from Salzburg; it is where they get married in the film. The church from the outside is really pretty and stands really well in the square surrounded by Christmas trees, market stalls and fairy lights. The inside is quite gloomy and dark and very detailed; it doesn't seem to... More

A baroque beauty. Drop in. We arrived just before Father Christmas on a horse drawn carriage. What great timing!

A beautiful, most enjoyable church in a lovely city. If you are in the area, stop in here. Relax into the peacefulness. (If there's a need, a very clean public WC is nearby.)

The baroque period was noted for an emphasis on form and symmetry and this basilica is an excellent example of such. It is certainly a very large church for a relatively small town in the Austrian lake district of Salzkammergut. Being used for the wedding scene in the factually highly inaccurate but nevertheless enjoyable 'Sound of Music' film has brought... More
