Salzburg has a sheer rock wall surrounding the old town and the lift brings you to a nice outlook over the city on top of this wall. As you come to the top, there is the modern museum however we were rather disappointed with the current exhibition at the Modern Museum end of January. The museum building itself is a... More

With a few euros or no euros if you have the Salzburg card you get to see the best view of the city. Those lifts are built inside the rock. The best lifts and the best view you will ever see.

It was many years since my last visit when the lift took one directly to the splendid old Cafe Winkler on to of the Monchsberg. The terrace of the former restaurant offered the best view of the old city, with an added benefit of fine dining, plus old world charm and service. Alas, the restaurant and a slice of history...

The lift itself is just an elevator...but at the top you have an amazing view of the city (great location from which to take photos of the fortress and the cathedral), paths for hiking in the woods, and eventually you can hike about 3/4 of a mile to a mile and end up about half way up the hill to...

Paid the small fee and took the lift - skipped the museum of modern art at the top, and spent the afternoon wandering around the top of Monchsberg. Beautiful paths, a few mini-castles, and phenomenal views. Perfect for Sunday afternoon strolling!

We spent hours at the top of Monchsberg, wandering the beautiful paths and looking out at the breathtaking views. There are a number of beautiful buildings to discover and a great view of the Alps that is not visible from the city of Salzburg. A nice place for a walk - no matter the season!

I have been taking this lift ever since I started going to Salzburg, and it has been great. UNTIL they remodeled it and ruined all the ambience it held. It is a great way to get to the top of the mountain, but that is all I can say. It is also more expensive since the remodel.
