Original Sound of Music Tour - Tour 1A

back to overview

Sound of Music Tour


Come and join us on a wonderful ride with breath-taking views of the landscape where the opening scenes of the movie The Sound of Music were filmed - not only in the city of Salzburg!

The film was taken 1965 because of the enormous achievment of the musical from Hammerstein and Rodgers "The Sound of Music" in 1959. Both, muscial and film, based on the Book "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers" written by Maria von Trapp in 1949.

Go on the traces of the Trapp family and take a tour to Salzburg and its surroundings. Visit all of the original film settings and feel, how Julie Andrews, the main character in the film, feels by playing Maria von Trapp.

Relax and listen to the Original Sound of Music soundtrack. You will not just see lots of highlights of the movie "The Sound of Music", but also get to know historical and architectural landmarks in the city as well as in the Lake District area.
