 Tour Overview

Be transported back in time on this daylong tour designed for fans of The Sound of Music. Begin the day at 9am when your private driver-guide picks you up from your Salzburg hotel. Start off with a Salzburg city tour, including stops at Leopoldskron Palace (Trapp house) and Hellbrunn Palace (Gazebo).

Next, drive past the German border to the Sound of Music Meadow, where Julie Andrews twirled and sang "The Hills Are Alive (with the Sound of Music)." After twilling you'll have the opportunity to purchase access to the Eagle's Nest via special busses and an elevator. Once you've reached the Eagle's Nest, enjoy unparalleled views of the Bavarian Alps, the King's Lake (Koenigssee), and the surrounding area of Salzburg. On your return trip from the Eagle's Nest to Salzburg, drive through the Lake District. Pass the Wies Valley, Fuschl, and St. Gilgen — where Mozart's mother was born.

Relax and enjoy the lovely countryside on the drive from St. Gilgen to the lake "Mondsee" further on to the town of Mondsee with the Sound of Music Wedding Church, from where we make our way back to Salzburg.
