Great ride

This was an ultra modern lift which took us from our hotel into the city of Salzburg. Our hotel gave us a free pass and we used it several times a day. Quick and efficient.

Ok...let's not get too excited about this attraction...it's an elevator. Yes, it does go up the interior of a mountain, so that's pretty cool. The views at the top are nothing short of spectacular. Still, you can save yourself the money by taking the stairs if you are fit enough...or, do what I did...pay for a one-way, and then walk... More

We used the lift frequently during our stay to go to and from our hotel (Schloss Monchstein). It's fast and convenient. Our hotel gave us free passes for our stay, which made it even better.

This is just a normal lift situated inside the Monchsberg hill. A ride up is around 2.50 euro I believe but is free with the Salzburg card. The lift takes you to the Museum of Modern Art. Here on the hill is the terrace used for filming scenes from The Sound Of Music, the terrace, known as Winklers Terrace gives... More

You have to pay to go up and down the lift so best to get a round trip ticket. The staff did not let us know that they charged both directions before we got one way tickets to the top.

We were not sure how we were going to get up to see the Salzburg Fortress thinking we have to walk up until we saw the lift. It is in the rear of old town and easy to miss the entrance. The ride up is relatively fast and takes you right to the fortress. The only way to go.

The steps are very tiring so take the loft if you can for the spectacular views! The views from Museum of Modern Art are great but if you want the spot for wow photos carry on round the Tarmac path and find the Humboldt Terrace and here you get a better aspect of the river. Set up at first light... More
