Believe it or not, but ‘The Sound of Music’ is 50 years old this year! The family favourite was filmed on location in Salzburg, Austria in 1964, and many of the sites used as a backdrop for the film can be visited today. During at visit to Salzburg you can see Nonnberg Abbey, which was the location for the convent, visit Mozart Steg, Domplatz and Herbert von Karajan Platz where ‘My Favourite Things’ was filmed, or even the Mirabell Gardens which provided most of the backdrop for the famous song ‘Do-Re-Mi’.

You can even stay in the real ‘Villa Trap’! Book a night here
