Made famous thanks to the movie "The Sound of Music," Nonnberg Convent is both one of the area's oldest religious buildings and a symbol of the city. Visit the convent, founded in 714, and explore the grounds to see the living quarters and daily surroundings of the nuns who called it home. Within, you'll discover crypts, medieval frescoes, religious decorations, and a mix of architectural styles ranging from Romanesque to Gothic. If you're a fan of the famous film, keep in mind that the woman known as Maria von Trapp once lived here, and her life later inspired the movie. As the complex sits above much of the rest of the city on a low hill, peeking out the windows can afford you a sweeping view over the rooftops and across to the forested hills beyond. Put Nonnberg Convent at the forefront of your travel plans using our Salzburg itinerary app.

Nonnberg Convent reviews
This is a must see in Salzburg. A little remote and a bit of a climb, this church is stunning and sacred. Ornate in its own way but less traveled and more peaceful. Beautiful view of the city from a different perspective.
Yeah....the scene from sound of music where the song 16 to 17 was sang. U can't go in the gazebo🙄. Lots of tourist so u can't have a picture by yourself with the gazebo. It's not worth your time if u ask me. The park was good though.
