What a pleasant surprise! We were staying on the north-eastern side of town and decided to walk into town via this hill. Lovely! Some very pretty views, it's nice and quiet and the trees blocked the occasional smattering of rain. Took us 1.5 hours from one side to the other, and this included a few stops to sit and enjoy...

We scaled the Kapuzinerberg to visit the Stefan Zweig house, although not open to the public (now a private house) it was good to see the place which inspired such a gifted writer. We visited the monastery half way up, partly to catch our breath, partly for the peace, tranquility and silence that is always present in such places. Altogether... More

The easiest path to the top seems to be following the paved road up as far as it goes and then taking the stairs the rest of the way. Other paths up seem to be mainly stairs. It's pleasant walking through the forest, especially on a hot day. Great views across both sides of Salzburg.

if you have the time do walk around the grounds and up the hillside - its an activity for a nice sunny day. The feeling of history oozes out of the place.

Okay, if you don't like hiking forget it! But if you enjoy mountaineering and trekking, this is an incredible spot. Right in the middle of this city is a solid 30 minutes upward hike with several viewpoints over the city, in a delightful forest. Making this an unusual atmosphere is the contrast between the feeling of a mountain hike and... More

We were walking around the back streets and came across this steep walkway. We decided to follow it not having any idea where it led to. It was a fairly streaky uphill grade to the top. We had great views along the way of the city at different levels. We didn't know what the large building at the top was,... More

I wasn't exactly in the best of health when I started this particular European trip. Even though the days before getting to Salzburg were full of long walks, they were on level ground in cities. It didn't look that daunting on my Google Maps app, but ten minutes into it, I realized that I wasn't exactly prepared for an impromptu... More

Perfect view onto the city. Make sure to go up there at least once. Note that there is no elevator and you have to take the stairs. Aufenthalt April 2015

It is worth to climb up to the hill, you have a breathtaking view from various points. You can admire the old town, the fortress and the surrounding mountains.

We walked up the hill, and I huffed and puffed up. The views were spectacular. There was still some snow on the ground and covering the alps, off into the distance, which was incredibly picturesque. We marvelled at the views for about half an hour.
