    In Salzburg, one always encounters the name of the von Trapp family. Baron von Trapp, his second wife Maria Kutschera and the ten children from both of the baron's marriages lived in Salzburg. There, the family launched a successful singing career until they were forced to flee to the United States to escape the Nazis. This story provided the basis for the musical The Sound of Music, which became a worldwide success starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. On this route you will follow the traces of the von Trapp family around and in Salzburg and get to know film locations, but also the places where they actually lived.
