Lovely easy hike between the Capucines monastry and the Franziskans Schloss

A beautiful walk up to the Kapuzinen monastry, then to Franziskanerschloss and down to the city. Great view, beautiful nature.

Be prepared the hike to the very top is not for the feint hearted, you need to be fairly fit as it it a long way approx 2 klm uphill. Do not stop at the Kloste, it is barely half way up, try and go to the top, you will be amazed

It's a steep climb up to the abbey from the new town and you get a goodish view and the church is - well - a church. However continue to walk past the church and you climb and climb ( there are a series of stairs every so often) through stunning woods and are rewarded with some amazing views. If... More

I didn't know exactly what was going to happen as I stepped off of a main street through what looked like an alley and ended up hiking about 1.5 kilometers with an elevation climb of almost 650 feet there is a cute inn/pub at the top. The side I climbed up was about a third stairs.

The earliest settlements here are supposed to date back to the neolothic period.In present times,this untouched area seemed to have escaped the extensive land development of the other parts of the town & one sees lovely natural beauty maintaining the integrity of the wooded areas with its rich variety of flora & fauna where one finds goats,deer,badgers & martens.Going to...

This relatively short mountain can be used to have a good view of Salzburg. It is quiet a hike. Yet the high view I got from Festunghohensalzburg is better, and you can see Kapuzinerberg as well as a reward.

The way to walk up is quite steep but a short one to the top. Once you are on the top you can have a very nice view of Salzburg.

It took us a while to find the stairs leading up to Kapuzinerberg and the hike up was a little strenuous, but it was well worth once up top. Best views of the city by far and it it isn't over run w/ tourists either.

start your trip from the linzer gasse and if you just want a short trip you can go down right at the top. If you have a couple of hours you should walk all the way accross the kapuzinerberg, but be warned, it is rather a hard walk if you are not used to it. At the end there is... More

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...
