Mondsee is a small town in Upper Austria (Oberösterreich) located on the shore of the lake of the same name. Situated less than thirty kilometres east of the city of Salzburg, Mondsee is perhaps best known for its late-Gothic wedding church Basilica St. Michael, where the shooting of the famous wedding scene from the film "The Sound of Music" took place. It was formerly a monastery church, as there was a Benedictine monastery founded in the eighth century by Odilo, Duke of Bavaria, and is still considered one of the largest churches in Upper Austria to this day. You will also find a couple of nice little shops around, if you wish to buy some souvenirs.

Mondsee is a part of the popular Salzkammergut resort area, where several other lakes are located as well, but Mondsee and the neighbouring Irrsee are the warmest of them, reaching up to twenty-seven degrees Celsius, thus making them a particularly popular destination among water-sports enthusiasts. Besides a wide selection of waters sports, there are also plenty of opportunities for hikers and cyclists, as the area offers highly scenic walking and cycling tracks.

There are mostly hotels in the town, but if you're looking for a little more affordable place to sleep, you can find quite reasonably priced Mondsee hostel dorms right in the heart of the town, just a short walk away from the lake of Mondsee. As far as the sightseeing in the town of Mondsee goes, there isn't really a whole lot to see, but if you just take a walk around the lake, you will witness some truly beautiful views.
