I wasn't exactly in the best of health when I started this particular European trip. Even though the days before getting to Salzburg were full of long walks, they were on level ground in cities. It didn't look that daunting on my Google Maps app, but ten minutes into it, I realized that I wasn't exactly prepared for an impromptu... More

Perfect view onto the city. Make sure to go up there at least once. Note that there is no elevator and you have to take the stairs. Aufenthalt April 2015

It is worth to climb up to the hill, you have a breathtaking view from various points. You can admire the old town, the fortress and the surrounding mountains.

We walked up the hill, and I huffed and puffed up. The views were spectacular. There was still some snow on the ground and covering the alps, off into the distance, which was incredibly picturesque. We marvelled at the views for about half an hour.

My wife and I decided to run up the steps and trails of Kapuzinerberg on our last day in Salzburg and we are so glad we did. If you are in relatively good shape, it is well worth the views. You will not find a better view of Hohensalzburg anywhere. In fact, at one outlook you are higher than the... More

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.
