Description

With the Danes Hill School Chamber Choir heading to the Salzburg region for their 2018 tour, and the most famous thing associated with the area being The Sound of Music, we have organised a private tour to take place on the Saturday afternoon, departing from Salzburg and concluding with a drop off at around 4pm at St. Jakobus Church in time for the concert at 5pm that afternoon.

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.

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.

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.

The tour will visit all of the original film settings where we will 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 to all the famous songs such as Edelweiss and many more...

Our guide will tell us everything you need to know about The Sound of Music, the vonTrapp Familiy, the film locations and about the shooting of the film and there will be ample opportunities to sing along too!

Departure is at 12 noon from the heart of the Mozart district in the centre of Salzburg:

Route:

1 - Mirabell Gardens
See the beautiful Mirabell Gardens where the song "Do-Re-Mi" was filmed. After or before joining the tour, a visit is recommended to seeing the gardens on your own exploring the Pegasus Fountain as well as the Do-Re-Mi steps.

2 - Leopoldskron Palace
Enjoy the spectacular view during a photo stop at Lake Leopoldskron mirroring the palace, where the famous boating scene was filmed. From there you will see the Captain´s backyard and private palace gardens.

3 - Hellbrunn Palace, Gazebo
Remember the song "16 going on 17" scene as well as the kissing scene of Maria and Baron von Trapp? Visit the original gazebo rebuilt especially for all movie fans in the gardens of Hellbrunn Palace.

4 - Nonnberg Abbey
You will pass by the Nonnberg Abbey which is still an active women’s convent nowadays. In this convent the "real" Maria was a novice and also got married to Baron von Trapp. The Abbey does not allow visits within its walls, but you are most welcome to walk up to the front gate of their Gothic Church or to visit a church service after our tour.

5 - Salzburg Lake District Area - St Gilgen
After touring the film-locations within the town of Salzburg, you will drive to the Lake District, passing Lake Fuschl and Lake Wolfgang, where panorama shots and scenes of the picnic were filmed. Enjoy the wonderful view down on to St. Gilgen and Lake Wolfgang at the photo stop!

6 - Mondsee - Wedding Chapel
In Mondsee you see the famous church, where the wedding of Maria and Baron von Trapp was filmed in the movie The Sound of Music. Afterwards there will be some time four us to explore this little picturesque town.

7 - The Afternoon School Concert
We will then return by coach to Salzburg in time for the concert that is taking place at St Jakobus Church at 5pm in the afternoon. We will be dropped directly at the Church.

Places are limited to 20 due to the size of the coach and places are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note that the tour is paid for in advance and we are therefore not able to offer refunds but tickets can be transferred to someone else to attend if necessary.

See you in Salzburg!
