On Steingasse which is a narrow cobbled alleyway across the bridge from the fort.... find the beginning of the steps with a sculpture of Christ's crucifixion ....climb 300+ steps... the church is on your right... but try to get inside the garden area through the gates in the high perimeter wall (if open) ... where the view across the river...

Take half a day to enjoy here, you need one hr to reach the top where you can find a small restaurant, we ate nicely for a correct price. Before reach the top there is a panoramic view of all the city, hope it's a nice weather. I'll come back soon to check in the winter time with the snow.... More

We were enchanted by a steep and winding road that began by going through a large gateway. Near the end of Linzergasse not far from the river, there is a road where you can walk up the hill to the Kapuzinerberg. The road leads up a steep slope to the Kapuzier monetary and a large wooded area. On the way... More

We wanted to have a complete view over Salzburg. The Kapuzinerberg offered us that opportunity for free! To help those who want to visit the Kapuzinerberg start your trek nearby the Platzl square nearby the Staatsbrucke bridge led us to the Franziskustor portal. We had to go on a steep road. We encountered 6 chapels, reminding us what Jesus endured... More

Actual buildings at top of hill are not that interesting per se. However if you stay on the edge of the cliff once you are at the top, you can follow footpaths with good views for quite some distance into an adjoining park. Total distance is about 1.5 miles. Can be steep at points and ground can get a bit... More

A little peace and quiet within the city.The easiest path to find to the top begins from Linzergasse and this route will lead you past 6 Baroque stations of the cross along the way that date back to the mid-1700s. The various paths/walks up will lead you to the Franziski Schlössl (built 1629), a small fortress that now houses a... More

Salzburg is overrated. The best place there is a huge shopping center nearby. The hill is probably one of the only places where you won't be pushed by crowds, the view is good but not too spectacular.

... and still right in town. It definitely pays off to walk up the steep path up the Kapuzinerberg, at least until the monastery where a little plateau offers spectacular, picture-perfect views over Salzburg. Those who feel like more sportive activity can make their way to the peak to Johannisschloessl for a well-deserved break with yummy (yet pricey) food.

We found a set of steps that took us up to a delightful little church, offering a welcome respite. We carried on and reached the top where we had hoped to be able to visit the monastery, but nobody appeared to be home. We went in the church, which was beautiful, found the Mozart bust and had a walk round... More

A little bit steepl but after a while you can enjoy a nice view over Salzburg (new town and old town). There are 2 ways to go up, one from Linzergasse (slope) and the other is from a little behind Platzl (steps).
