One of the most famous and iconic films of the 20th century, The Sound of Music is a true classic – it’s catchy tunes like ‘Do Re Mi’ and ‘The Hills are Alive’ transporting many of us straight back to our childhood living rooms. Set in the Swiss Alps, the film brought much more than just the hills to life in the charming city of Salzburg. Today, tourists in their thousands rush to the helms of this picture-perfect city to get an insight into the life of the Von Trapp’s and the actors who played them.
Sing ‘Do Re Mi’. Belt your heart out on your visit to the Mirabell Gardens. Laid out in the 18th century, the gardens were the filming location for the famous ‘Do Re Mi’ scene in the film.
Couple up. Pair your Sound of Music adventures with visits to other amazing Salzburg attractions like the Salt Mines and Halstatt tours to save significantly on your Salzburg trip.
