“The hills are alive, with the sound of music!” I was like a kid in a candy store the morning we woke up in Salzburg, knowing we were going to be seeing the Sound of Music film sites. As a little girl, I would anxiously await the once a year broadcast on TV of the movie, The Sound of Music. Since a little girl, Austria has been on my list of places to visit. Salzburg was lovely. Those of you who have seen the movie, as you look through these pictures see how many scenes and locations you can remember from the movie! So fun!!!
This was the “I have confidence” song location as Maria walks by the fountain and splashes water. Almost all the fountains were covered in Salzburg. This made me a little sad!:( (Residenz Square and Residenz Fountain)
“Do- Re- Mi- Fa-…” I was disappointed that the stairs from the end of this song were closed off. We could only see from a distance. When the older kids saw the stairs they said, “look Mom, it’s where they filmed the song!” (Mirabell Gardens and Palace)
This residence was the back drop for all the outside Van Trapp home scenes. For example, when Maria and the children capsize the canoes and fall into the water. If you look close, you can see the stone balusters that are filmed numerous times in the movie. (Leopoldskron Palace)
“I am sixteen, going on seventeen!” (Hellbrunn Palace Gardens)
Both from children singing, skipping along the river and hanging from the trees!
