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.

Man, that was some walk. Around 2 km of mountain hiking. We took the elevator up amd walked up from there to the fortress. Unbelievable view fro the top.

Use the "Salzburg Card" to get a free ride on the Monchsberg Lift. The view at the top is breathtaking. You can see the small streets of the old city, with its beautiful buildings. You can see the Zalch River winding his way, with all the beautiful hotels on its river bank and the magnificent fortress that dominates the horizon.

We were staying at the Hotel Schloss Monstein who provided us with lift passes for the duration of our stay. Fabulous to just go (literally) down town for the day, evening or at will!

Spectacular panoramic views of the Fortress, Old Town & New Town. The view never gets old – morning, mid-day, or evening! This setting was also used in the Sound Of Music film. A must see! Although we did not go, a museum and restaurant are there as well.

The view from the top of the Monchberg is stunning. We enjoyed walking along the remnant of the old wall that protected the city during the Middle Ages.

Worth the money, especially on a hot clear day. We would have liked to do the walk up there with the kids but unfortunately no time. The view is still fabulous though. A to-do thing in Salzburg. Definitely.

An easy way to the top of one of the hills with a good view back down to the river, city and across to the Fort. Also good access to the paths along the top of the hill.

The ride to the Monchberg is in a very fast elevator inside the mountain. Once on top there is a possibility to have leisurely walk in the forest and visit the Museum of modern art.
