During this walk we will visit the famous filming locations of the movie The Sound of Music in the centre of Salzburg. We will see the scenes from Do Re Mi, I have confidence, just to mention a couple. If you enjoy singing we can sing the songs and even reenact the scenes! You will also hear about the real Von Trapp family, their true story. I will share with you some fun stories about the filming and the actors and actresses as well. At the same time you will be walking through Salzburg, its baroque gardens, opulent squares; amongst its many churches and hills, across its river the Salzach and along its narrow streets with beautiful pastel coloured houses. Towards the end of our tour you will experience incredible views of the Old Town of Salzburg and the mountains. If you don't see a date and time that fits your plans please get in touch.
I'm Kata, a licensed guide in Austria. Originally from Hungary, 8 years ago I came to Salzburg on a day trip. On that day I fell in love with this breathtakingly beautiful city, so I quit my marketing job in London, packed my bags, moved and haven't looked back since! I started guiding bike tours, first as a summer job, but I soon realised how much I enjoy showing guests around, sharing my knowledge, and getting to know new people every day. With 7 years of experience and now with my official license I can show it all to you!
We will start our walk on the right hand side of the river Salzach, visit Mirabell Gardens, then cross the river to the Old Town of Salzburg. We will walk through narrow streets, large open squares and at the end up a small hill to visit our final filming location and enjoy some breathtaking views!
How to recognise me: I'll be the one wearing the curtain scarf :) Please arrive to the meeting point 10 minutes before start time. There will be opportunities to use public restrooms during our walk.
