Melody Tours & Travel has a unique offer of a singing guide "Melody Guide", you can enjoy a creative & musical tours beside a rich historical & kultural guidance through the city of Salzburg. You could enjoy the flair of the movie " The Sound of Music" as your own in the right place. This tour brings you to all the shooting spots of the film in the (extended) city area.
We make our journey partly by bus and partly by walking beginning in the loveliest garden at the Palace Mirabell where you would remember several scenes of the film "The Sound of Music" (e.g. the song "Do-Re-Mi"). Then we across the river Salzach over the bridge.
We'll explore the Old Town with Salzburg's most prominent sights, and finish this part of the tour with a visit up to Monchs Hill. There we enjoy a spectacular view on the city, with the Fortress "Hohensalzburg" from afar as a vivid reminder of Salzburg's unique history as an independent church state for centuries. And perhaps, at some locations you would feel like singing some of your favourite songs - anything that comes to mind - together with your guide.
We will then drive to the suburbs of Salzburg and on the way we see the old Nonnberg Abbey and we visit Palace Hellbrunn (visiting the Gazebo where "I am sixteen, ..." was sung), and see Palace Leopoldskron (main shooting location of the film) by taking a walk at it's large pond.
