The von Trapp family and the cult film “The Sound of Music” from 1965 still bring many holidaymakers to Salzburg today. Especially for visitors from the English-speaking world and from Asia, it is an emotional experience to see the original film locations of the famous music film in and around Salzburg with their own eyes for once in their lives. The Mirabell Gardens with the Pegasus Fountain, the Residenzplatz and the Felsenreitschule are well-known filming locations that are just as much a part of “The Sound of Music” tour as the Benedictine Monastery of Nonnberg, Leopoldskron Palace, Hellbrunn Palace with the Glass Pavilion and Frohnburg Palace.
