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

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.
