The Original Sound of Music Tour in Salzburg

The original The Sound of Music tour is the top choice for fans of the iconic musical, visiting all the most memorable filming locations from the movie. Admire magnificent views of the Austrian Lake District; visit Mirabell Gardens, Mondsee Cathedral, and Lake Wolfgang; and sing along with the soundtrack on the tour bus.

Not why you go to Salzburg but stop here on your way to the funicular for a good picture of the Fortress. You also can get great pictures of the south side of the Cathedral.

Unlike other cities that have a single city square, Salzburg has multiple squares and Kapitelplatz is one of them. Located outside of the Salzburg Cathderal, this is the route to the Hohensalzburg Castle. In winter there wasn't much crowd but would be busy in summer as tourists flock to Festungsbahn. In winter the fountain is also covered in perspex casing to protect against the elements. So, couldn't really appreciate the beauty of the statue in the middle of the square.

This is a large and busy place. Along with the history, generally concerts happen here. The stage is prepared, and so is seating space and then show goes on in evenings. Also, this is the common area for a lot of things: Salzburg museum, Panorama museum, Festungbahn for fortress, St. Peter's abbey etc.

This nice little square is in old town close to Salzburg Cathedral and Honesalzburg Fortress. There are few shops nearby selling local art/craft products and souvenirs. Right in the centre there is an unique statue of a big golden ball with a man on top. There is also a huge chess board. A nice square where all the tourists spend some time clicking pictures. All other major attractions of old town are close by.
