The Sound of Music is our family’s favorite movie. We love it so much that during my first trip to Salzburg, Austria, a few years ago, I researched all the important addresses used in the movie and drove to a few of them.

The trip took a scary turn when I ended up in the wrong part of town and my car got stuck in a small, deserted, muddy road and it started getting dark and cold.
So when my family and I visited Salzburg for the holidays recently, they suggested we take the official Sound of Music City Tour run by Salzburg City Tours.
The trip, which has been Salzburg’s most popular tour for over 35 years, lasted about 4 hours at only 40 euros per person. It was worth every penny! We all had an amazing time, learning a lot of facts about the movie that were not available online. The guides were very funny, helpful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable (and, yes, we even sang songs from the movie on the drive to the different locations.)
Here are a few highlights of the tour:
