A look inside the real Von Trapp house


Villa Von Trapp, the original home of the real Von Trapp family that inspired ''The Sound of Music'', is being opened for visitors to stay overnight.

The house in Salzburg, Austria, never appeared in the film, but was at the heart of the story.

While it has been blocked from being turned into an official hotel, keen tourists can now rent rooms.

Aoife Mulholland, who was a finalist in BBC One's 'How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria', takes a look around with curator Christopher Unterkofler.
