Difficult to get to as there are 150 steps up to this old church and abbey. Apparently this is where the real Sound of Music couple actually married. A little bit austere for my liking. did hear some lovely singing in the background whilst we were there.

We wanted to visit Nonberg Convent as we were familiar with the movie, Sound of Music. There was a splendid view of the Austrian alps. A very nice and idyllic place

Had to stop here to see some sights from the sound of music. Its always fun to see something you have seen on the big screen more than a dozen times.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, well worth the climb up all the stairs from the city. A beautiful, restful place.

quiet and reflective and see the evidence of generations of nuns kneeling and walking on the hard stone floors.
