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

It will get you up and down :-) Not much to say about it. Maybe with an exception that instead of a building it is a lift inside a hill.

The view from the top is really worth it! Must go up to see the city! We had the Salzburg City card so the attraction was free... no idea about the charges otherwise!

The Monchsberg lift is three express elevators that take you from the base station in Anton-Neumayr-Platz to the Winkler Terrace near the Museum of Modern Art, high up on the hill called Monchsberg. This is the same terrace where Maria and the Von Trapps sang 'Do Re Mi' in the Sound of Music. The small ticket price of € 3.40... More
