"The Sound of Music" Songlist:
Sing-along on your "Sound-of-Music-Tour"

A cow enacting The Sound of Music in the city centre of Salzburg.

Neither Mozart, nor the architecture of the Baroque gem Salzburg attracts the largest share of visitors - 70 percent of all tourists who make it to the city come because of "The Sound of Music". Don′t be surprised how much the tourism mafia sells tacky "TSoM" merchandising, despite of the musical being virtually unknown in Austria itself.

A very significant attraction that is concerned with the film and musical are variations of the so-called "Sound of Music Tour". There are several tourism companies that offer these guided excursions, but you can reach most Sound of Music locations easily by walking or public transport. For details, see our guide to your "Personal Sound of Music Tour".

One thing you will definitely need, though, is to sing yourself - the busses come with the records, if you do the tour yourself, the responsibility for the sing-along is with you. To assist you in putting together your trip, you find the complete "Sound of Music Songlist" below.
