Basilica St. Michael is the wedding church from the famous movie "Sound of music" and therefore a famous attraction for tourists all over the world. The abbey is one of the oldest in Austria and for me one of the most picturesque. When in Mondsee it is a must-visit!

Vienna is known for music,history, and architecture. One can enjoy all that by taking a tour of this church. Observing mass here was a great experience. The church in all its glory with the music filling this space in the way it was intended A must see which puts a visitor in the middle of a bustling fun neighborhood

The highlight of my trip to Salzburg was my excursion to Mondsee, where I spent some time at Basilica St. Michael. The beautiful exterior pales in comparison to the beautiful scene that awaits you inside the church. There are many small souvenirs to choose from, and for a small donation you can also take home small bottles of Holy Water,... More

Our group included the ensemble choir from my daughter's school. They were privileged to perform a 30 minute concert for us and the other folks visiting the church. The church has multiple organs and is as beautiful as it was during the filming of the Sound of Music. The town is a picture postcard of Austria. We had wonderful pastry... More

We visited the very pretty village of Mondsee during the Lakes and Mountains tour from Salzburg. It was dusk when we arrived and the place looked stunning in the snow with all the Christmas lights and decorations. Sadly we visited in early January after the Christmas Market had closed but the wooden stalls were still in situ so we could... More

We enjoyed our visit to this church as part of the Sound of Music Tour. Even though we are not die hard fans of the movie, it was enjoyable to see the interior of the church. There is also a gift shop in the front of the church with many appealing souvenirs.

We visited this church as part of a Sound of Music tour. It is full of gilt and is beautiful. Lots to see, but most visitors are only interested because this is where Maria and the Captain married in the movie.
