Film History
in Werfen

Werfen as a movie location

Sound of Music, Where Eagles Dare and more

 

The fact that Werfen has frequently been used as a movie backdrop, isn’t just because of mighty Hohenwerfen Castle enthroned high above the River Salzach. Its proximity to Salzburg City – just a 30-minute drive way – also plays a role, as does the beautiful mountain world.

In  1964, “The Sound of Music” with Julie Andrews was filmed up at the Gschwantanger. Visit this famous “Sound of Music” location on the Gschwantanger, too, and feel like you are Julie Andrews herself.

 

 

It was here that Julie Andrews, as Maria von Trapp, shared a picnic with the children and taught them the famous song “DO-RE-MI”. In the background, magnificent Hohenwerfen Castle. A scene which has since been seen by over one billion people.

The castle rising dramatically towards the heavens also appears to have interested the director of a different movie genre: In 1968, the film “Where Eagles Dare” was shot in Werfen. Clint Eastwood and Richard Burton heroically conquered the castle, known as “Schloss Adler” in the film, with the help of a gondola lift. So, when you are here in Werfen, if you ever find yourself thinking “it’s just like in the movies”, you are absolutely right.
