Schloss Hellbrunn, Salzburg, Austria

The Sound of Music gazebo can be found on the grounds of the Hellbrunn Palace.  It was originally kept on the grounds of Leopoldskron Palace, where the outside facade scenes were filmed.  But, because people would trespass on the privately owned Palace grounds to see the pavilion, it was moved to the gardens at Hellbrunn Palace.  There wasn’t a single tourist the afternoon we found the gazebo, only locals frequenting the park.DSC_0413 DSC_0415 DSC_0414

After finding the gazebo and getting pictures we noticed it was on the outskirts of a public park, Schloss Hellbrunn.  It was a lovely park with cross country skiers dotting the snow covered fields.  The children found a playground in the distance and a small zip line.  We had a few minutes to spare as we waited for the next bus to come, so we all burned off a few breakfast calories at the park.  It was fun!  Everyone tried the zip line and Sophie loved it.  She would laugh so hard and loud the whole time!  If no one thought we were Americans upon arrival to the playground, they did after watching, seeing and hearing all of us!  We, Americans, can be so loud!  But, we had a great time and it was a fun pastime amongst all the sightseeing.
