The final Sound of Music location is the foot bridge over the River Salzach. This was used in the sequence where Maria takes the children on the picnic in the mountains. There are good views down the river and of the Fortress.  On the opposite bank to the Old Town you will see the Kapuziner Monestary that was also featured briefly in the film.

A Bit of History

The Mozartsteg was built in 1903 to connect the Steingasse area to Mozartplatz. Up until 1920 it was privately owned and you can see the Toll Booth on the Mozartplatz side of the bridge. This is now a tiny coffee shop.

End of the Tour

This is the last location on the tour. You can either head back into the Old Town for some well earned refreshment, or turn left at the end of the bridge and make your way back to Mirabell Gardens.

Thanks very much for using the Tour. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Salzburg.
