This is the cheaper option to get a great view of the river and city. There are concessions if you need them. If you have time then there is also the museum. The view itself is worth the time and puts the area into perspective. There is a restaurant at the top which is relatively inexpensive. Not the best seating... More

Got to do this. It is a fun and easy way to get up to the fortress. Great views while going up and down .

Nothing remarkable about the lift, but you get great views at the top - well worth it if you combine with the entry to the museum at the top (inclusive ticket at a decent price)

Great view of the city an ideal place to take the classic photograph of the city scape. Just a quick trip in the lift which is a standard lift and nothing exceptional.

If you are travelling and visit Salzburg, do not ever miss the complete city view; impressive! Also - for a special meal - out on the terrace - experience not to be missed!

It is an elevator. It takes you to somewhere you want to go - either the top of the hill (me to hike) or the Museum of Modern Art

Inexpensive way to ascend to the viewpoint. Once there, take a break and have a drink on the terrace enjoying the city views, then walk along to enjoy wider views.

Use the lift to get up to the museum, or the cafe inside. Then go for a hike if you so desire. The views are fantastic. We were there in the late winter so a bit of snow on the ground made it special...though tougher to walk in.

It's worth taking the lift up to the Museum of Modern Art for the views over Salzburg. The Museum itself was partly closed when we visited so there wasn't a lot to see but the views made up for that. The restaurant also had wonderful views but when we visited the menu was limited and the ambience lacking - perhaps... More

The lift to the Monchberg Ridge Trail was reasonable and fast. Once up to the trail, enjoy the walk and the view. Walking to the end you will find the Nonnberg Priory. Enjoy the quiet atmosphere here.
