The opening scene hill at Mehlweg
Please Note - THIS LAND IS PRIVATE PROPERTY
( Yarm on Tees, N.E.England )
I have been to the opening scene hill where Julie does her twirl, and thought I would give directions on here, so others may be able to find it too.
From Salzburg head towards Berchtesgaden in Germany, which is about 15 miles away.You will cross the border into Germany after about 8 miles,and just after this you will be in Marktschellenbeg.It is a small village,and you will cross a small bridge over water, and see a church on your left. There is only one other road from the centre of the village, this goes off to the left just after the church. Take this turn and then head off to the right,and follow the signs for Mehlweg. It is quite a climb,about 3 miles to the end of the road, which will lead to the area known as Mehlweg. The road comes to an end at the very top. About 200 metres from the top, look for a small blue sign on the left which says Mehlweg 1,3,5,7, which leads to 3 houses and a farm. Take this road and head up to the farm,and then pass to the right of the farm. This will lead to a field, and if you look up to your right the hill is there. Climb up and once you are on the hill it should be recognisable. There is some cable car machinery on the hill now. I don't know if this is private land or not, but I have been there twice (2005 and 2007), and have never been bothered.
Of course if you are coming from Berchtesgaden then the church and turning will be on your right. Click here
