I'm no Sound of Music fan but I did love the Basilica where they filmed one of the most famous Hollywood wedding scenes. St. Michael's is a beautiful church that is so much more grand that what it seemed on TV. Check out the images on the web and you will see what I mean. The little gift shop within... More

The two of us came here to see the Basilica, due to it being the church that Maria gets married in. The taxi driver who took us (Walter) was fantastic, parking right next to it. The inside of the Basilica was beautiful, probably some of the best interior in the world. There's also a great gift shop, and what we... More

Well, if you a sound of music fan, don't miss this. this is where Maria and Captain Von Trapp got married in the film. It's a very nice church. the town itself is so beautiful and nice as well. Definitely spend 1-2 hours in this lovely little town if you are there.

The size of this church is staggering and the interiors were ostentatious and big, but it is worth a visit.

The church was a location in 'The Sound of Music', which means it gets tour groups. Don't let them put you off, though. They don't swamp it, and it's still lovely, particularly inside.

After a pleasant walk we arrived at the Basilica which is in an elevated position on the south side of the former monastery building facing a large square. The beautifully painted yellow walls with white detailing of the twin tower entrance facade of Baroque style is very impressive. On entering the church one encounters a light late Gothic interior with... More

We were fortunate to visit St. Michael as part of The Sound of Music tour (it looked larger in the movie). This lovely Basilica is in picturesque Mondsee, about 30 minutes drive from Salzburg. Entry is free and they allowed picture taking so to contribute to the church upkeep, we bought souvenirs at their gift shop. There are free public... More

We took the Sound of Music tour from Salzburg and found ourselves in some of the most beautiful country ending at this place. As stated it is the church inthe wedding scene of the Sound of Music and we were not disappointed. Though it is not as ornate as some of the big cathedrals, it is beautiful and has a... More
