Walking up the Kapuzinerburg Hill was such an enjoyable highlight for us. We chose to start our walk using the entrance just off Linzergasse through a stone archway with steps on the left hand side. Its a fairly steep climb but suitable for anyone with a fair level of fitness. The view at the first lookout (near the church) is... More

This area was an absolute wonderful place to visit! The buildings, view, and everything! The view over the city made you see everything of those pretty large and little houses in the city!

Kapuzinerberg is the hill that can be seen on the east bank of the Salzach River. There is a long wall around the hill erected during the Thirty Years War. There are many small military towers along it. The entrance is on 14 Linzergasse. From there it is a long, steep climb to the top. On the way you will... More

Hiking up the Kapuzinerberg is a nice nature break in between when visiting Salzburg. The location is very convenient, you can start your hike going right through the arch in the middle of Linzer Gasse pedestrian zone. The way consists of quite many steps, but it should not be any problem for anybody used to hiking or taking steps instead... More

Worth the walk up. One of my favorite views of Salzburg. Several great angles from which to view the city. Definitely take time for a walk up.

You can take your way form Platz and Linzer gasse to the hill. There is terrace with a nice city view at your first stop after a really hard climbing near Church. Stephan Zweig house is also inside area. After you stop here, you can keep climbing up. It is area full of trees, walking roots. Taste of tracking in... More

You should go up here for the view of the city and the fortress. It is steep but well worth it. Go to the bastion that's facing the river.

It literally took 5 minutes after leaving the Linzergasse to climb the steps and be out of the built up area of Salzburg and into the green forested hills of Kapuzinerberg. The walk up the hill is not difficult for anyone with moderate fitness. The forest scenery and occasional views over Salzburg are worth every step climbed. Highly recommended if... More

Wear good shoes and hike up the hill to see great views of Salzburg and a nature park right in town. Interesting church/statues and scenery. Worth a hike. Bring a picnic if you like. We went to the Delitalessen...an Italian deli for our picnic basket
