The Mondsee Abbey church is the filming site of the wedding in "The Sound of Music." While gazing around inside the church, I brought up the film footage of the wedding scene on the YouTube app. Sure enough, the same paintings on the walls can be seen :) There is a very nice souvenir shop inside with booklets about the movie we had not seen elsewhere.

Before visiting the church, we found a perfect restaurant for lunch (pizza). The lake itself (the actual "Mondsee") is picture-perfect. This must have been a popular weekend for weddings. We had just seen the preparation for one at Mattsee, and now we witnessed a wedding on a dock of the Mondsee.
