"Sound of Music Weddings" – getting married against a magically beautiful (movie) backdrop

More than half a billion people worldwide have seen the most famous movie musical of all time, "The Sound of Music". And every year, around 300,000 fans come to Salzburg in order to visit some of the original shooting locations. And now, you can even "tie the knot" at five of those places.


  • Schloss Mirabell is home to the most beautiful wedding hall in Central Europe, the Marble Hall. World-famous Mirabell Gardens, with the Pegasus Fountain – which movie buffs also know as the 'Do-Re-Mi Fountain' – provides the magical setting.
  • Schloss Leopoldskron and its pond were used to represent the back of the Villa Trapp. The Venetian Room, with its golden panels and mirrors, provided inspiration for the ballroom in the film, serving today as a venue for weddings as well as receptions.
  • The white gazebo was a place for lovers even in the movie: It was here that Rolf and Liesl sang "Sixteen going on Seventeen" together, and Baron von Trapp and Maria kissed for the very first time to the lyrics of "Something good". Today, that very gazebo stands in the palace grounds of Hellbrunn: It offers couples plenty of space just for one another, with an added dose of romance.
  • Villa Trapp is another special place to say "I do!", in which the actual Trapp family used to live. Wedding ceremonies are held in the same rooms where Maria and the children used to reside.
  • Moviegoers know the Untersberg because it provided the backdrop and mountain panoramas used in the opening scenes. Lovers can either exchange rings on the sunny terrace next to the lift station, or at the summit cross, 1,853 meters above sea level.
