The Sound of Music 50th Anniversary
PHOTOGRAPHS: EVERETT/REX/SHUTTERSTOCK, PEERJ. COM/ARTICLES/1011, JULIANO RIBEIRO SALGADO, DAVID JOYNER, FONDAZIONES PRADA, MIKE CUTTING

Researchers working in the cloud forests of south Brazil have discovered seven new species of frog on seven different mountains. Shown here at actual size, all are under 1cm.

It’s half a century since Julie Andrews’ melodious misadventures around Salzburg first hit the big screen, making it a great time to visit the Austrian city – especially alive with the sound of music during its annual Salzburg Festival, six weeks of world-class concerts, operas and plays from 18 July to 30 August (salzburgerfestspiele.at). Here are a few ideas for reliving the cult movie on location:

1 Take a musical tour of film locations, from Maria’s convent to the gazebo at Hellbrunn Palace – with singalongs on the way (salzburgguides.at).

2 Roam Alpine meadows like Maria by heading out to the foothills surrdounding Salzburg – salzburg.info has details.

3 Stay with the Von Trapps at Leopoldskron Palace, an 18th-century castle on a lake – and their on-screen home (from £115; schloss-leopoldskron.com).
