For more than half a century, millions of people around the world have been following the bitter sweet film story of the von Trapp family in the worldwide cinema hit "The Sound of Music". The film, starring Julie Andrews, was filmed in 1965 only a few kilometres as the crow flies from Hallstatt in Fuschl, Lake Wolfgang and Salzburg. Now it's time to open a new musical chapter: "The Sound of Hallstatt"
