I was so happy that Leesa agreed to go on the Sound of Music tour with me. We took a mini-bus with six other Sound of Music lovers around Salzburg and up into the hills (you know, the ones that are alive with the sound of music). The Sound of Music was filmed entirely in and around Salzburg, the hometown of the real Von Trapp Family. It was really nice to be able to see the fantastic countryside around Salzburg, and of course to sing all the songs with our tour guide! Yeah, I was the only one singing.
The house that was used for the back of the Von Trapp mansion, including the scene where Maria and the children fall out of the boat:
The gazebo where Lisl and Rolf sing "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" and Maria and the Captain sing "Something Good:"
The church where Maria and the Captain get married:
I know, the interior doesn't look pink in the movie.
The kids and Maria dance around the Mirabell Gardens when they sing "Do Re Mi:"
The Mirabell Gardens also features a Dwarf Statue garden. They are mannerist style sculptures of real dwarves who were in the service of the Prince Archbishop. The kids pat this guy on the head as they pass by. I think this one is my favorite:
