We found this on our own, looking it up while walking around. It's not very obvious, but really interesting once you get in. It's surprisingly easy to get into. Not a large cathedral or location but rich in history. We spent less than 30 minutes...More

We visited this place on our SOM tour, and it was great getting to see it in real life. It may not have been the site of the movie wedding, but Maria Von Tropp really lived here, and the real life wedding happened here. The...More

This review is of the outside only because the inside wasn't open on our visit. The attached picture are of the gate - reminiscent of the Sound of Music. Unlike what other reviews have said - this is NOT where the wedding took place. It...More

Once you have survived the stairs to get there, you see the most amazing views of the mountains. You are free to take some sound of music pictures and then we got to listen to a fantastic choir rehearsing in the chapel.

An old an charming Convent in the heart of Salzburg. Situated on a hill, it's a short walk from the nearest parking place but it's worth it. It has a nice view over the town.

If you love the Sound Of Music, you will want to visit this chapel where Maria was married. Just outside, there is a overlook to the city. Not sure how to drive up, so we climbed the stairs. If you aren't in shape, it will...More

Beautiful small chapel where Maria (Sound Of Music) was married. Has a overlook of the city. A must place to visit.

Lovely building, made famous by the Sound of Music film as the home of Maria. Accessed by walking up the road / path in front of the castle entrance / ticket office. It's not obvious that you can go inside, but the church is open...More

We didn't come here because of the Sound Of Music - but if that's why you're here, it's a must-see. We climbed the many steps to the convent, quietly explored the courtyard, took in the views of the city (spectacular) and lingered for a while...More

A must see if you are a Sound of Music fan, but you cannot enter the convent. The attached church is open to the public and provides a place of quiet reflection.
