We didn't know in advance that this church was here or that it was cinematically famous, so it was a delightful surprise to come upon it is we walked around this lovely village. We didn't go inside but even just from the outside this is a truly beautiful church. The fresh looking yellow and white paintwork really set off the... More

We rent a car to travel from Vienna to Salzburg to see where the Sound of Music was filmed, and then passed by Mondsee on the drive and couldn't resist pulling over after seeing the gorgeous town on the lake. After a bit of googling,maw discovered Maria's wedding was filmed at the Basilica St. Michael and were delighted that we... More

Mondsee is a quaint town in Austria located on the northern shores of lake Mondsee, a short drive from Salzburg. The main attraction is most likely the basilica, because it is very gorgeous and also because it was used to film the wedding scene in the 'Sound of Music'. The town has lovely little shops and several cafés/restaurants. I bought... More

This is the last scene in Sound of Music. The abbey situates at the centre of this small town Mondsee about 1 1/2 hours away from Salzburg. The interior of the abbey is one of the finest I have been seen.

Beautiful church ( seen nicer ) but nice and it is cool to see where the sound of music marriage to Maria took place :) There is a little boutiques attaches and Ofcorse you can light a candle for a loved one. The little area around the church is worth a visit for sure.

The Basilica was used for the wedding scene in The Sound of Music. Very spectacular although I feel more so inside than out. No problems to use your camera inside. Certainly set up for tourists as you go through the gift shop to enter the basilica. Once inside the splendor is amazing. The guilder statues, paintings etc. makes you wonder... More

We came here as part of our Sound of Music tour. Do go inside to check out where the movie marriage ceremony took place. There are plenty of photo opportunities inside and out. This is a beautiful town with plenty of placed to enjoy a lunch or drink on one if the many sidewalk cafés.

A real nice, although pretty small, church in the center of this small town. We entered, took some pictures and that's about it. The highlight is actually the front of the church.

Helpful English public commentary inside the church building. Impressive internally and externally. I can see why it was chosen as a film setting.
