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

The most beautiful views of Salzburg can be seen from Capuchin Hill. This is an elevated area across the Salzach River from Salzburg's "Old Town". The entrance to the Kapuzinerberg road can be found off the tourist shopping street known as Linzergasser. Look for an old stone archway with a narrow steep road going up with an old stone walkway.... More

It is best to drive up the mountain half way if you have a car. It offers nice views of the City especially 1 hour after sunset

Steep way up the stairs, especially hard on a hot day, but worth the climb when you get there for the view over town from the other side. Don't forget to take water and do stop at the small chapel on the way there.

The views of the fortress from here are wonderful and worth the climb up the steps.There is a board with a map by one of the churches but there are many paths.

A walk up the near 300 steps will lead you to a wonderful view-point giving views over the river to the old town and the fortress. On the way up there is a tiny church to explore and at the top another church. After the hustle and bustle of the town this is a wonderful place to linger.

I was lucky that I was there before the floods invaded Salzburg. It was a sunny afternoon, but because of plenty of vegetation and high winds it was pretty cool. There are three ways leading to the top, which is a cafe with a terrace. The top offers a good view over much of Salzburg, only second to that offered... More

Walking up to this park is quite fast, it takes around 15 minutes by stairs only, and you'll be rewarded since you'll catch a wonderful view of salzburg, with all the historic buildings and places at the same "frame". Something interesting to be done is bring some food, sit in one of the benches and just slowly eat your food... More

The hill has a few viewing platform to enjoy the panoramic view of the city of Salzburg. We were able to look towards the old city and the new city area. The whole hiking journey took us about two hours to finish. The hill has several entrance-exits, and we started our walk from the entrance near the river, and ended... More
