Sound of Music

We wanted to visit Nonberg Convent as we were familiar with the movie, Sound of Music. There was a splendid view of the Austrian alps. A very nice and idyllic place

Had to stop here to see some sights from the sound of music. Its always fun to see something you have seen on the big screen more than a dozen times.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, well worth the climb up all the stairs from the city. A beautiful, restful place.

quiet and reflective and see the evidence of generations of nuns kneeling and walking on the hard stone floors.

A beautiful location.... stunning views of the back of the city. See the gates that were used in the Sound of Music, it really is a must see place! The church itself is rather dark, but as a filming location as well as the views, you must not miss a walk up to the Convent!

I primarily went to see the Nonnberg Convent because it was supposedly where the nuns sing "Maria" in "The Sound of Music," and that was going to be my token SoM site while I was in Salzburg. I did not get to see that supposed site (I assume it is somewhere in the convent itself, which is still a functioning... More

Amazing view of Salzburg from the top of the convent. Beautiful surrounding gardens and buildings. This is also were they filmed the scenes outside and through the gate of the convent in the Sound of Music.
