The Sound of Music Tour

The Sound of Music Tour - a great way to be introduced to the beautiful locations in Salzburg where the famous film was made - in the city centre, and out in the countryside.

The locations were chosen because they were either factually correct - relative to the true life story - or they just looked superb!

Whatever the case, take some time to tour the Sound of Music palaces, gardens, churches and lakes that were to be the real stars in the film.
