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

This is a lovely place to walk and enjoy great views over Salzburg and the Festung Hohensalzburg. You can either walk up a steep side road off Linzer Gasse or reach the top via the steps off Steingasse. The former takes you past many religious statues whilst the latter past the house where the composer of ' silent night' lived... More

I've climbed Kapuziner berg and found it really attractive. There are nice views from different locations on the mountain especially if the weather is sunny... Today it wasn't unfortunately, but still the panorama of winter Salzburg (among others the Cathedral and a Castle) was outstanding... Really worth visiting if you've got an extra hour or two... It's also a good... More

If one climbs the Kapuzinerberg from the Linzergasse, one passes six Baroque chapels, stations of the cross made 1736-1744 by Salzburg artists. The passion figures and scenes depict the suffering of Christ and ends at the monastery with the crucifixion group. About half way the walk one passes under the “Felix port” built Prince Archbishop Paris-Lodron in 1632, after this... More
