The steep climb up Kapuzinerberg is highly recommended. If you're staying in the old city of Salzburg, cross the river Salzach and walk up Steingasse to St John's Church on the Imberg and then up to the Capuchin Monastery. There is a lookout near the monastery from which there are wonderful views back across to Salzburg itself and to the... More

come here with the darkness and breathe the magic of Salzburg. Probably the better view because you can see old city and castle all together.

This is an absolute lovely place to walk up too. We went up only 1/4 the Kapuzinerberg. And there is a chapel with a view point. Not many people go up here because of the steep climb. But in 15 mins you will reach 1/4 the way up and get a stunning view of salzburg's old town. Its on the... More

It is worth climbing this berg to have a glimpse of the fortress. Just make sure you take the right stairs back, otherwise, you will end up in a trail, which must be amazing, if you are wearing the appropriate gear!

If you like walking to get a great view, this is a fantastic thing to do if you visit Salzburg. Hard work but so worth it and at the top was a wonderful advent market in the Franziskirchlossl.

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.
