The walk up is a bear!

We walked up to the Fortress. It was super hard. My fitbit counted it as 66 floors. We were happy that the ride down on the lift was included in the price of admission.

The best view over old town and the castle can be enjoyed from up here. You can either walk down from the castle or make it easy and take the elevator. You won't be disappointed.

We hiked up the mountain once and took the lift down. For 2euro if someone in your party wants the magnificent views but not the strenuous stair climb it's great.

This lift which takes you up from the Museum of Modern Art to the second Museum at the top of the mountain is a must do for any visit to Salzburg. The views of the city, the river and the Hohensalzburg Fortress which looms over the city and dominates your view from most everywhere, are spectauclar.

We took the lift up at night. I was hoping it was going to be what looks like a very old looking lift you can see on the cliff face, which worried my wife, but it was actually a very modern lift inside the rock. we had a Salzburg card, so it was "free". We went up at night, which... More

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
