The Sound of Music -
Although the movie was dubbed and ran in German (and presumably Austrian) movie theatres as "Meine Lieder, meine Träume" for a while, you may still find the Salzburg locals a little bit puzzled for the simple reason that most of them have not seen the movie. However, if you want to test the movies worldwide popularity, just start humming a few of the famous tunes and songs like 'Edelweiss' wherever on the planet you just happen to be - and within a moment you will be joined by complete strangers in a merry 'The Sound of Music Chorus'.
Now, for your visit to Salzburg, here are the locations where the film was shot:
The Benedictine Convent on Nonnberg: it is here that nuns sing 'Maria'
Mirabell Gardens and Mirabell Palace: Maria and the children sing 'Do-Re-Mi'
Residenz Square and Residenz Fountain: Maria crosses Residenz square in a bus on her way from Nonnberg Convent to the Trapp Villa singing 'I have confidence in me'
Felsenreitschule: here, the Trapp Family performed its farewell song and Baron von Trapp sang Edelweiss
St. Peter's Cemetery: it was here that the dramatic flight scenes were filmed
Leopoldskron Palace: the façade facing the lake represented the von Trapp residence
The Sound of Music Pavillon: can be found at Hellbrunn Palace today, in the movie it was still located at Leopoldskron Palace. One of the most famous and romantic scenes was filmed here: 'I am 16 going on 17'
Frohnburg Palace: courtyard and main front were used as a backdrop
Other scenes where filmed outside of the city, for example at Anif Palace, Hohenwerfen Castles, Mondsee, Fuschl, St. Gilgen and Lake Wolfgang.
