Let us show you that the ‘hills are still very much alive’ with our most unique Sound of Music Tour.  Relive with us the true story of the von Trapp family which was filmed as the “Sound of Music” in and around Salzburg.

The tour which has been Salzburg’s most popular tour for over 35 years, is a combination of both this historical city and the breathtaking Salzkammergut -Lakes and Mountains area - also a famous musical and cultural centre. Our company Salzburg Sightseeing Tours (Albus) was involved in the making of the film back in 1965 and today our experienced tour guides are proud to show guests from around the world where this famous movie was filmed.

Salzburg was of course the home of the real Trapp Family and this tour lets you see many of the original locations making it a truly memorable experience not to be missed during your visit. 

Relive with us the true story of the von Trapp family which was filmed as the “Sound of Music” in and around Salzburg.

" Sound of Music Tour. "

We grew up watching the film so as we were going to be in Salzburg we signed up for the tour. I didn't realise I should have brought a voucher so we went to the kiosk in Mirabelle Platz and the gentleman in lederhosen was very helpful. Peter was our guide and very informative on the film and locations.

The whole experience was wonderful! So great to hear all of the back story from the sound of music and be able to go to so many of the sites. All the areas had just the right amount of time to enjoy yourself and take pictures. Our guide Ana and driver were amazing! Highly recommended!

Perfect way to reminisce about the wonderful age in which my mother showed me and my brother SOM for the first time. The gazebo, the basilica.. every place melts the heart. I would totally recommend it!

Our tour guide was the cutest elderly man, Peter. He explained that he has since retired from being a tour guide but still stays in touch with the tour company if they need him to do last minute tours, which happened to be thbe case for the one we went on! He was such a wonderful man and make jokes along the way. He ensured everyone was singing and enjoying themselves. You will most definitely be lucky to have Peter as your guide. The tour itself was absolutely spectacular. This tour gives you the most fulfilling Sound of Music experience. If you are a fan (or even if you’re not) it will make all your dreams come true. The bus takes you high up into the mountains and provides you with breathtaking views of Salzburg. Needless to say, this tour is a MUST if you are visiting Salzburg. It is informative as the guide will give you “inside facts” about the movie as well as thas city that you would otherwise not know if you don’t go on the tour. I would highly recommend it !

The Sound of Music tour is a MUST when visiting Salzburg! It was absolutely amazing and without a doubt the best tour I've been on. I'm studying abroad here and have traveled to lots of different destinations already, yet the Sound of Music tour is probably one of my favorite memories so far. We saw the majority of the sets from the movie, drove into the Alps, and stopped in a cute little town to get strudel and see the church where Maria gets married. The tour guide (David) was hilarious, energetic, and knew his info. He told us some secrets and fun facts from the movie and we sang songs from the movie on the bus ride. Would 110% do again, hope to come back in the summer one day!
