This church was built in the 1600s in a picturesque valley near Salzburg, Austria. The Marriage of Maria and the Baron in Sound of Music was filmed here. The outside is nice, but the inside is breathtaking. Some of the most beautiful paintings and artwork I have ever seen. I would go back to stay in the town and explore... More

We stopped here on the Sound of Music tour, it was nostalgic walking the very aisle wherein Maria and Georg Von Trapp (Ala Julie Andrews/Christopher Plummer) wedding scene was filmed in this cathedral. Basically if you are a Sound of Music fan, you should not miss ticking the St. Michael’s Basilica on your ‘To Do’ list. The Basilica situated in... More

Of course the primary attraction to this basilica is that it is the filming location for Maria's wedding in The Sound of Music. It is very beautiful and it seems as if nothing has changed since the movie was filmed. Although I enjoyed stopping in, I did not end up spending much time there but rather moved on to exploring...

Seeing this church was a great experience - childhood images from The Sound of Music come to life in the reality of the bricks, timber, mortar and art of the interior. Not always interested in viewing the interiors of many churches, thought famous, this basilicas seemed to have a unique life, warm and freshness to it that I could easily... More

Visited this church as a part of a Sound of Music tour and it was breathtaking. The interior of the church is very large and it is in different sections so you can spend ages looking at the architecture and statues inside. Truly beautiful. It is definitely worth seeing if you are in the area and Mondsee is a lovely... More

You absolutely must see this church, even if you are not a sound of music fan. The high ceilings and pink interior are just too charming.

This beautiful church is very nice, it is part of the sound of music tour (where Julie Andrews got married at the end of the movie).

It was a trip being able to walk down the aisle like Julie Andrews in Sound of Music. (although she did it way more elegantly) . A very beautiful church - obviously nothing like the duomo in Milan or Notre Dame, but some very nice architecture and icons

We stopped in Mondsee on the way to Salzburg. The basilica is right in the middle of town on a pretty square. The Japanese magnolias were in full bloom outside the church which added to the ambiance. It is a beautiful church with impressive main altar and side altars. Certainly worth a visit.

My wife and I are traveling to the area for our 20th wedding anniversary and would like to renew our vows at the St. Michael's has anyone had experience or know how to go about scheduling a small ceremony? We sent a few emails but have not heard back from anyone at the Basilica.
