The tour takes in the white gazebo, the grounds and lake behind the house in the movie, get a glimpse of the Trapps actual house, go through the Lakes area to see the cathedral where they were married and also a look (from a distance) at some of the hills used in the movie. Time flew quite quickly and before we knew it we were back in town just outside Mirabell Gardens.
After a good look through the gardens and the gnome garden we headed into the centre to get our train tickets to Interlaken for the following day. Thankfully the man behind the counter spoke English quite well so we got the tickets for the trains we needed. As the tour doesn't go to the castle we decided to climb the stairs to reach the top and see what it's all about. We were quite suprised to see that they were charging entrance but thankfully it included all the areas and a train back down.
The castle like most others have a great view over the town and surrounding areas.
As the tour included a free cocktail at the hostel we headed back to enjoy it while watching the sound of music. Unfortunately a number of people decided to use the small internet area behind the movie area to chat loudly so it was very hard to hear anything or enjoy it. So we called it a night.
