Bad service, too much wait for everything... It was not busy, just slow girls... When we asked for the check no one came back for 15 min and I went inside to pay.

The lift takes you up to the top of the Museum of Modern Art and had a wonderful view of the city. Worth paying to do if it is a pretty day. We did it as part of the Salzburg card.

We took the elevator, which is inside the art museum to the top of the Monchsberg to enjoy the views. We went for a walk along the top and the walked towards the castle, stopping at a restaurant for some drinks, before walking down into the Salzburg old town.

We took the lift up to the top which took only a few minutes. The view over the city was great despite the rain! The fortress looked magical in the mist. We also visited the modern art museum. At 9 € each it wasn't cheap and we felt quite cheated. If you like contemporary art then you may enjoy this... More

After the quick and easy lift up, we were thrilled to discover that the view was just as we had imagined. Breathtaking. We would have spent more time here if the weather had allowed us to stay longer (heavy rain decided to fall upon us), but we still managed to go for a lovely stroll and stay for a bite... More

Compared to the disappointing fortress on the adjoining hill and the more ambitious Kapuzinerberg climb on the opposite side of the river, this was a dawdle. We started near the Augustiner Brewery (a must visit) and made our way to the top, paused for refreshment and the most astonishing views across the city, before descending via the modern Museum and...

Monchsbergaufzug provides amazing panoramic views of the city of Salzburg and the alps. I preferred this area because I can have the fortress in the photos as well and it works out cheaper getting your... More

The best views over Salzburg for sure. The museum is nice with many modern paintings and statues. We had lunch in the restaurant and it was good with a lovely view.

Worth climbing up the steps past the 12 Stations of the Cross until you reach the viewing area at the top. Waited to see the sunset over Salzburg which was beautiful.

Monchsbergaufzug is located about a mile (via the winding streets of old town) north west from the Hohensalzburg castle. If you have a Salzburg card, the lift to the top and the modern art museum is free. The modern art museum is nothing special but the view from the terrace is the best in Salzburg. There is a cafe on... More
