Where did they film the scene where Maria arrives at the von Trapp House?

The von Trapp villa with the driveway and the gate was featured in several scenes and was portrayed by the Frohnburg castle in Salzburg, Austria.

Interesting about the Frohnburg filming location

Most of the shots of the von Trapp house were filmed at Frohnburg castle, even though it seems that some of the scenes in the backyard of the von Trapp villa were shot from the castle there (Schloss Leopoldskron). For example, the scene where The Captain catches Rolf throwing a stone in Liesl’s window or when the captain watches his children arriving in the boat. The Captain stands at Frohnburg while the children and Maria are in a boat at Leopoldskron.

Scenes filmed at Schloss Frohnburg:

  • Maria arrives at von Trapp House
  • Maria and the children are leaving the house for a trip to the city
  • Rolf is throwing a rock into Liesl’s window
  • Captain tears down a Nazi flag from his house
  • The whole von Trapp family is stopped by the Nazis as they want to escape by car
