On the traces of the von Trapp family


This tour is the perfect combination of the city of Salzburg and its beautiful countryside, known as the Lakes and Mountains District, which is located east of Salzburg. Besides a general city tour this tour also covers all the important sites from the famous movie Sound of Music like the Mirabell gardens with the Pegasus fountain, the Festival district, the Castle of Leopoldskron, which was used for the backside of the von Trapp house, the Gazebo at the Hellbrunn Park, the famous areal view across Lake Wolfgang and the wedding church in Mondsee. As the movie is based on a true story this tour also leads to the real places of the von Trapp family.
This tour is tailor-made for Sound of Music fans from all over the world as well as for people, who want to enjoy the charm of Salzburg City and its beautiful countryside.

Itinerary

This tour starts with a stop at the Mirabell gardens in the new town, where you have the option to walk through. From there it leads across the river Salzach to the old town with all its important sights and places. The next stop is the Castle of Leopoldskron located at a beautiful lake within the city, followed by the Castle and the Park of Hellbrunn, where the Gazebo is placed. From there this tour continues via the real von Trapp Villa to the Lakes and Mountains District past Lake Fuschl to Lake Wolfgang with a stunning view across the town of St. Gilgen and the lake. The last stop of this tour will be in Mondsee with the wedding church of the movie Sound of Music. From there it is a short drive back to Salzburg City.

A Recent Review of this tour

Marcus spoke English fluently. He knew the many details of the Sound of Music. Not only did he show us the filming sights but he also gave us information and showed us sights about the real Von Trapp family. He also provided a lot of useful information for us to explore Salzburg on our own later. The information was more than you would read in a book or gather from a larger tour group but tidbits of interesting facts and places to revisit within the city. I highly recommend this tour with Marcus.
