Mondsee is a small little village in upper Austria. The two main attractions are the Mondsee lake and Basilica of St.Michael.This area was part of Bavaria in olden days. The church appears to be more than 500 years old. This church became famous after the wedding scene in the movie " Sound of Music" was shot here in the sixties.... More

Basilica is not only a beautiful historical site but also a living place where local community use to meet. Now, it is rebuilt in a baroque style but lot of Gothic artefacts are preserved showing the centuries old tradition. Worth to visit and absorb the spirit of centuries...

Our SOM tour stopped in Mondsee for an hour & half. Went inside the Abbey which was used for the wedding & my 11 yo daughter noticed there were little Jagermeister bottles of holy water you could have for a donation. Of course she wanted 1 as a souvenir.

The Beautiful baroque style Basilica is the actual place where the movie "The Sound of Music", was filmed. The wedding of Maria-the nanny with Admiral Von Trump, was filmed here. We saw a Bride and groom with their photographer, taking pictures at the small square in front of the Basilica. You enter the Basilica from the left side, through a... More

This is a gorgeous Basilica in the delightful little town of Mondsee, tucked away in the Austrian Lake Region. It is the location chosen for the movie wedding of Maria and Baron VonTrapp in The Sound of Music. I am very glad I visited and walked in their footsteps, although the excellent guide said that the movie script took much... More

What a beautiful church. The magnificent alter and beautiful side alters are amazing. Even if you're not religious it is something to see.

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
