Come and join us on a wonderful ride with breath-taking views! Tour the picturesque World Heritage City of Salzburg as well as the beautiful landscapes where the opening scenes of the movie The Sound of Music were filmed with our live guide!

 

The enormous success of The Sound of Music Broadway Musical by Rodgers & Hammerstein premiering in 1959 caused film director Robert Wise and 250 crew members to turn Salzburg and its surroundings into Sound of Music film location in 1964. And it was Salzburg Panorama Tours taking the Sound of Music film crew to the various locations where the famous movie was filmed.

 

Right after release, the film became a tremendous success, awarded with 5 Oscars becoming the highest grossing movie ever and reaching cult status over the years. Both, musical and film are based on the "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers" written by Maria von Trapp in 1949.

 

Do follow the traces of the Trapp family and take a tour through Salzburg and its surroundings. Visit all of the original film settings and just imagine being Julie Andrews, the main character in the film, playing Maria von Trapp. Learn about the historical and architectural landmarks of Salzburg as well as the Lake District while enjoying the highlights of the movie. Relax and listen to the Original Sound of Music soundtrack and of course feel free to sing-along Edelweis and many more... Our live guide will tell you everything you need to know about The Sound of Music, the Trapp Familiy, the film locations and about the shooting.
