Snow and Music with private guide
From your hotel in Salzburg this tour leads southwards to Filzmoos in the Salzburg Alpine region, where you will meet the farmer with the sleigh. On the way to Filzmoos we will already stop at the first Sound of Music (SOM) sights like the Castle of Leopoldskron (von Trapp family home in the movie)and the Gazebo at the park of Hellbrunn. The itinerary for the sleigh ride itself is described under the horse-drawn sleigh ride Tour. After the sleigh ride our way takes us through a beautiful mountain scenery to one of the nicest areas in Austria, the Lakes district east of the city of Salzburg. We will drive past Lake Fuschl to St. Gilgen at Lake Wolfgang. The view across the town and the lake you can see at the beginning of the movie SOM. Finally this tour leads to the lake and the town of Mondsee, where you can visit the wedding church of the movie. From there it is a short way back to your hotel in Salzburg.
