Sound of Music options

Salzburg is the location of the "Sound of Music" and fans of the movie will never forget the marriage between Maria and her Captain von Trapp.


When you leave the Marble Hall after marrying in Salzburg's Mirabell Palace, you enter the Mirabell Gardens featured in the movie directly in front of the Pegasus Fountain next to the "Do-Re-Mi-steps" before heading through the inner city in a horse-drawn wedding carriage.


Of course, a wedding in the "Sound of Music" Wedding Church is easily arranged. The scene was not filmed in Salzburg, but in the Mondsee Cathedral. For more information on marrying in Mondsee, please see our link to Salzburg Lake District Weddings. In its own right, the Mondsee Cathedral in the center of the lake village is a beautiful location.


For a very extravagant alternative, Leopoldskron Palace is one of the most exclusive locations in Austria. Known as the Captain's lakeside mansion in the movie, the palace is even more magnificent than in the movie and the perfect location for an elegant wedding, including an overnight stay for the bridal couple in the prince's rooms of the palace. For more information on marrying in the city of Salzburg, please see our link to Salzburg weddings.


The lovely Austrian countryside has many locations for weddings that provide the quaint charm of the movie in a more subtle way. Ideas for these locations can be found on the pages: Alpine Weddings and Lake District Weddings.
