Famous all around the world, the movie “The Sound of Music”, based on the musical by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II of the same name, helped to turn the city and province of Salzburg into an international tourist attraction and Maria von Trapp’s autobiography “The Story of the Trapp Family Singers” into an international bestseller. It comes as little surprise that many a destination, performance and event are dedicated to the Trapp family.
There are several highlights for fans of “The Sound of Music” to experience around the four-star Hotel Wolf-Dietrich in the historic city centre and the private, cosy Wolf-Dietrich Apartments.
Here are three things every aficionado of the legendary story turned musical turned film gets to enjoy.
Original Sound of Music Tour
The English-only bus tour by Panorama Tours Salzburg is a genuine treat for fans of “The Sound of Music”. Travel to all the movie’s original sites across the city and province of Salzburg, such as the Mirabell Gardens, Leopoldskron Palace and the arbour in the garden of Hellbrunn Palace, and pass by the Nonnberg Priory. Another popular stop is the picturesque lake area in the province of Salzburg with St. Gilgen and Mondsee.
Did you know: Contrary to popular belief, Maria von Trapp wasn’t a neophyte at Nonnberg Abbey, but rather a teacher at a primary school? The wedding to Captain von Trapp also didn’t take place at Nonnberg Priory, but actually in Mondsee, a mere 28 km from the city of Salzburg.
