The Sound of Music

Salzburg provides the film backdrop for a global hit

Five Oscars, moving songs and a worldwide community of fans; that’s ‘The Sound of Music’. It’s one of the most popular cinematic offerings ever, and is inextricably linked with Salzburg and its music. In 2015 "The Sound of Music" celebrates its 50th anniversary!


Explore the places featured during the filming of the lives of the Trapp family – on the Sound of Music tour. Enjoy the ‘Dinner Show’ featuring all the best-known songs or watch a performance in the Salzburger Marionettentheater puppet theatre.


3 factors that ensured ‘The Sound of Music’ was a worldwide hit:

  • The story in the film is based on actual events. It’s a moving and emotional story that almost feels like a fairy-tale
  • It features majestic countryside scenery and the beautiful backdrop of the city of Salzburg
  • and the great actors supporting Julie Andrews.

From nun to nanny

As we’ve mentioned, the film was based on a true story. Maria von Kutschera was born in Vienna. Later she was a novice in waiting at the Benedictine cloister on Nonnberg Hill in Salzburg. However, her abbess sent her to look after the seven children of the widower, Baron Georg Ritter von Trapp, as a governess.


However, not long after Maria married the Baron and at the beginning of the 1930s she founded a family choir with which she gave numerous concerts. Following the Austrian ‘Anschluss’ with Germany in 1938 the family fled from Austria, and from this time on they were wholly dependent upon their musical activities as the only source of income. Ultimately the Trapps reached the USA and in 1941 in Vermont (Stowe) they purchased a farm, which over the years was developed into the Trapp family lodge.

On the trail of the Trapp family

Maybe you’ve also dreamed of following in the footsteps of Maria von Trapp. On your visit to Salzburg, seize the opportunity to visit the locations used for the filming of the ‘The Sound of Music’ and enjoy the world famous songs at the unforgettable ‘Dinner Show’.

Muvico Parisian 20 & IMAX Muvico Parisian 20 & IMAX Watch For It: During "I Have Confidence," in The Sound Of Music ('65), Julie Andrews trips. She did so entirely by accident. Director Robert Wise thought the stumble a perfect reflection of Maria's nervousness and kept the moment in the film. We're working with our friends at Fathom Events to share screenings of THE SOUND OF MUSIC ('65) this Sunday, April 19 & next Wednesday, April 22. Purchase tickets at & . #SOM50th
