The life of the von Trapp family is intertwined with that of Salzburg itself. Every year, some 300,000 people visit important landmarks in the life of the von Trapp family and the story told by the movie. The fascinating life of former novice Maria von Trapp and her singing family became a world-wide success when the film was released in 1965, with Julie Andrews starring as Maria. The songs from "The Sound of Music" are famous around the globe.

Original shooting locations from the Sound of Music movie include:

  • Mirabell Gardens and the Pegasus Fountain (the dance scene with Maria and the children)

  • Schloss Leopoldskron (in the film, the house where the family lived)

  • Hellbrunn palace (singing scenes)

  • Nonnberg Convent (where the young Maria was a novice)

  • St. Gilgen / Wolfgangsee (opening scene of the movie)

  • Mondsee Basilica (wedding scene)
