We had a 24 hour Salzburg Card and were aiming to cover as many things as we could within this time. The Moenchberg lift was open until 9pm as it was a Wednesday and we decided it would be perfect to view Salzburg, from above and at night. We went up about 8pm. There was no queue at this time...

Probably not worth the money if one of your likes is walking. If you're lazy, take the lift. The lift also takes you to the Museum of Modern Art.

It's free if you have the Salzburg Card! The lobby has an awesome mosaic tile picture of the Salzburg Fortress. A quick elevator ride to the top and you get great views of downtown and the surrounding area of Salzburg.

Do not miss it! The view is fantastic! You have to pay 3,40 euros to go up and down, but is totally worth it!

Me and my wife took the lift only to go to the highest point and have a good view from the city. We have not entered in the museum as we are not big fans of modern art. The view really worth the couple of Euros that you have to pay to go up. You will see the whole old... More

This is a cool lift, carved into the mountainside. If you just take it to go to Stadtalm it is worth it. We took the lift daily as our Hotel was on the top of the hill. Pay attention to times as it closes early on Mondays I think. There is a walk path on the hill as well. The... More

The view from up top is terrific! The lift is just a regular elevator but it goes up very high. Worth a trip up there if your keen to see a good view of Salzburg!

The view from the top is very nice and there is a nice park to walk around in. If you just buy a ticket, the cost was around 3 Euro which seems high per adult from a lift ride. There is not really a better alternative to reach the top, so it is what it is.

Had a snack in the cafe, listened to the church bells ringing, took amazing pictures, enjoyed local beer. Did not go into the museum.

This is just an elevator ride with the only thing different about it is the shaft goes up through rock not a building. What makes this worth it is the view from the top. Overlooks Salzburg old town and the river and helps you figure out where everything is. Used the Salzburg card for admission. (I would highly recommend getting... More
