View the movie outside scenery in the wonderful area of Salzburg
On this trip in the comfortable glass roof panorama van, I pick you up in Salzburg and then make together with you from the van around to the movie places within the city.
I will explain you the locations and show you the positions and you might catch a picture of the most places already. Then we will go outside the city of Salzburg to see two palaces used in the movie scenery and of course the gazebo.
We'll cross over the border to Marktschellenberg to have a look at the view where the opening scenes of the movie were taken, or alternatively see the field of the Do-Re-Mi song.
On the way back you are going to visit the original Villa of the Trapp family.
After a lunch at a typical regional restaurant on a mountaintop, we'll drive to the lake district - the Salzkammergut. Here you will find some views used in the movie and last but not least we'll visit the village of Mondsee with the famous Basilica where the wedding scene of the movie was taken. Then we'll go back to the city center of Salzburg.
