Visiting the Monchsberg Rock when you are in Salzburg is a must. The easiest access, unless you fancy the hike, is via the lift on Gstattengasse which takes you to the Museum of Modern Art. A return ticket is €3.50 (you can get a single if you are eating in the restaurants on the top and you may get it... More

Go there on sunset for a wonderful view. Covered in Salzburg card , the walk from lift entrance into the woods is also good.

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

Things which may be helpful: 1) The elevator is not well marked but is on the west side of town under the Modern Art Museum; 2) Inexpensive at about 2 Euro each way; 3) This is the best way to the Stadtalm Care and Modern Art Museum, but not to the Fortress. We took the lift to get to 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.
