- The first activity we recommend is the Fraulein Maria Bicycle tour. There are many bicycle guided tours available. The routes usually go from Mirabell Square through the Mirabell Gardens, the Horse Pond, crossing the St. Peter’s Cemetery to Nonnberg Convent, on to Leopoldskron Palace, to the Frohnburg and through the beautiful Hellbrunn Avenue to Hellbrunn palace and back to the city. It is a magnificent tour that will show you many of the Sound of Music filming locations.
- The second activity we recommend is the Sound of Music bus tour. Just like the bicycle tour, there are many bus tours available in Salzburg. Some of the typical locations you will see on the tour are the Mirabell Garden, the Pegasus Fountain, the Nonnberg Convent, Schloss Leopoldskron, the Hellbrunn Palace, the white Gazebo and the Church Mondsee (where Maria and the Baron get married).
Salzburg is an amazingly compact city that remains in a perfect time capsule. It has changed little over time and still has many of the old medieval architecture that makes it so alluring to this day. It is no wonder the producers decided to use Salzburg as the backdrop for The Sound of Music. Salzburg truly remains the perfect backdrop for any wedding that wants to be timeless and memorable.
