Directions to Do Re Mi Picnic Meadow

by Richard
(Yarm on Tees, England)




If you are looking to find the meadow where the Do Re Mi opening scene was filmed then here are the directions:

Take the A10 south from Salzburg,and Werfen is signposted off the motorway to your right, about 25 miles south of Salzburg. Go into the town centre and you will be in Markstrasse. There will be shops and bars to your right, and hotels to your left. Leave the town centre and head towards the castle. When you see guesthouse Neuwirt on your left take the next road on your left. This is Joseph Struber strasse and there are lots of green signs. Follow the road around to the left, and you come to a small junction where straight on would lead back into Werfen centre. Take a right turn here and climb steeply. Ignore any streets to the left and right, and keep climbing until you reach a 'leaving Werfen' sign. Just after the sign turn sharp left and climb again. After about half a mile you will go over a cattle grid, and you will be able to see the farm up to your left. The field is located inside the wire fence, and it belongs to the farm. I would get permission from the farm owners if you want to go on the field, but it is visible from the road. From the town centre it is about a 20 minute walk or 5 minutes drive.
I hope these directions are as popular as the Mehlweg hill, and I have sent them to others who have been able to find this location by using them.

Do Re Mi Meadow -Calculated Geo Coordinates
by: Jerry Browne

Following directions and using Google Earth, I think the Do Re Mi Meadow is located at:

47°28'20.67"N
13°10'50.52"E

or

47.472408 N
13.1807 E

The castle is in the background from the meadow when looking Northeast and the background mountains fit. You can also barely see the cattle crossing grid and the farm fence.

Can anyone verify the Lat Long for sure by visiting the actual meadow?

Phil,

I had a hard time finding the exact Werfen picnic spot. How far off is the marker I have on my map?

Norma,thanks for the invite. I am indeed still a fan,but I have a months trip to the USA booked for most of April. I am only 10 miles from Middlesbrough, and would have been there otherwise.
Hope your production is a great success. Is it at the Little Theatre?

Glad you like the photos Greg. I must go back there again soon as they were taken in 2003 on my last visit to Werfen. I did read your articles, they were most interesting,do you have any more?

I Feel Like I Am Watching The Movie Again!
by: Greg May

Richard, your photos make me feel like I am watching the movie all over again! I can just see Julie Andrews sitting on her guitar case and Angela Cartwright eating that apple while Leisl and Marta (or was it Gretl?) are playing cards. Did you read my article on this website "How Do You Solve A Problem Atop Maria's Mountain?" and "Gretl, You're Not Singing!"? Thanks again for the photos and directions - I love the castle in the background!

Do Re Mi field/meadow.
by: Richard

Regarding the photos attached to my directions. The first one is looking towards the castle with the do re mi field to the right. The second is looking down to the road that you will come up, and the third is with my back to the castle looking the other way to the farm that owns the land, the field now on the left.
