On the foot of the Eastern Alps we arrive in Salzberg, Austria, on the trail of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and of a troublesome nun called Maria.

Experience a tour with a difference as we explore magical Salzburg and the sights made famous by the iconic movie, ‘The Sound of Music’. Sing in harmony at the film’s locations & lose yourself in truly stunning landscapes.

In the town where the lives of Von Trapp family come to life and dance across the Pegasus Fountain, we endeavour to create our own musical memories to treasure. Many sights will be familiar to us from the timeless film, Leopoldskron Palace, Nonnberg Abbey but none play in our mind more than Maria skipping down the Monchsberg hill, where we visit and bring the hills alive with the sound of our harmonies.

Between the nostalgia, we fill the tour with equally significant monuments of Salzburg’s culture and history and with a free day to explore at leisure we can uncover the romance of Salzburg to its fullest.

Highlights

 

  • Visits to  Mirabell Palace & Gardens, Monchsberg Hill, Nonnberg Abbey, Leopold Palace
  • An afternoon’s cruise down the River Salzach
  • Harmonises with the Salzburg Choir

Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival day

Today we fly from London Heathrow to Salzburg and upon arrival we transfer to our hotel and then spend the evening getting better acquainted over dinner.

Day 2 - Spectacular views

A visit to Mirabell Palace & Gardens gets our day off to a beautiful start. This is a perfect singing spot, with views of Nonnberg Abbey. After lunch, we visit Pegasus Fountain and the steps that featured in ‘The Sound of Music’, where we will sing.

Day 3 - Do-Re-Mi

This morning we visit Winkler Terrace, set high upon the Monchsberg Hill. This is where the performance scene of “Do-Re-Mi” in the film began. We will also visit the modern art museum before lunch and a visit to the small festival hall where “Edelweiss” was performed – for this, we will be joined by the Salzburg Choir.

Day 4 - How do you solve a problem like Maria?

Another iconic place from the much loved film is ours to explore today, namely Nonnberg Abbey, which is still in use as a convent now. Following a stop for lunch, we tour the magnificent Leopold Palace and can even sing at the lakes!

Day 5 - Guided tour of the Von Trapp villa

We have secured private access to the Von Trapp villa today, where we will also spend time singing together in perfect harmony. Later, we cruise down the River Salzach back to Salzburg, where our coach will take us back to the hotel.

Day 6 - Free day

Our final full day on this tour will see us enjoying some free time. At dinner, where we will be treated to a dinner show courtesy of The Sound of Music Performers.

Travel Tip

 

  • Make use of your free time and visit a few more sites from the beloved movie, ‘The Sound of Music’. Why not head to Schloss Hellbrunn, where the song ‘Sixteen Going On Seventeen’ was performed in its garden pavilion? Or, perhaps, you could scale Untersberg Mountain, which provided the backdrop to the film’s most iconic scene – and don’t worry, there’s a cable car!
