This 8-hour Tour combines the original locations from the world famous musical "The Sound of Music" with the historical "Eagle's Nest". Your tour starts with a tour of the city including the Palaces Leopoldskron (von Trapp Family House) and Hellbrunn (Sound of Music Pavilion). Hellbrunn Palace is on the way to the Eagle's Nest which will be next. Passing the border to Germany the journey continues to the Sound of Music Meadow (The Hills are alive) and further on to the "Obersalzberg" which is located at 3000 ft elevation right below the Eagle's Nest.
From that historical point you will access the Eagle's Nest with special busses and elevator. The very scenic view to the Bavarian Mountains, the King's Lake (Koenigssee) and the surrounding area of Salzburg will be an everlasting memory of your holiday. During the winter months, the tour might visit Rossfeld summit instead, to get a stunning view of the Bavarian Mountain and the Eagle's Nest.
Returning from the Eagle's Nest you are on your way to the second highlight of that full day tour, the "Salzburg Lake District". Without returning back to Salzburg the tour continues straight to the Wies Valley and further on to Fuschl and St. Gilgen. Take a stunning photo of the castle of Fuschl with emerald Lake Fuschl in the background.
The next highlight is Lake Wolfgang and the village St. Gilgen, the scenery of the area was shown at the beginning of the Sound of Music Film and also Panorama Shots were made here. Enjoy a view from the "Mozart View Point" to Lake Wolfgang and the "Schafberg" Mountain. Maria and the children were using the rack-railway to the "Schafberg" when going from the city to the picnic site. Capture a picture of the lake from that great view point before you will continue to your last stop.
Relax and enjoy the lovely countryside on the drive from St. Gilgen to the lake "Mondsee" further on to the town of Mondsee with the "Sound of Music Wedding Church", from where we make our way back to Salzburg.
