there are two lifts in town, 1 to take you up to the fortress and this one that takes you up to the modern art museum. The great thing about this lift is once you are on top you can wander around the forest trails, sit up at the modern art museum to have a drink or a meal in... More

The Monchsberg elevator is relatively inexpensive [E3.40 round trip or free w/ Salzburg Card]. This goes to top of the Monchsberg to see the Museum of Modern Art, 2 restaurants or to go hiking which is what we did. The elevator is quick & easy, it is a fun way to get to top instead of hiking up and the... More

In every city, one should find a nice, high location for pictures. This is the one. I paid just for the trip up the hill, and walked my way back to town through the forest paths. The view from above is awesome, and you won't get lost, there are signs explaining all directions. If you are in a hurry, fine,... More

This was covered by our salzburg card (infact the card really makes sense if you are going to Untersberg) and we went to the top by the lift. the views of salzburg city are really nice, The fortress looks awesome from here.

Really enjoyed the cable car ride up the mountain. Beautiful views and a nice smooth ride. This was also included in the price of the Salzburg card.

It's a good way to get on the top of the hill. Ride itself wasn't anything special. The car was so full of people that we hardly saw anything during the ride.

The walk up to the fortress is steep! We took the lift up and walked down. The views were stunning at sunset.
