After the quick and easy lift up, we were thrilled to discover that the view was just as we had imagined. Breathtaking. We would have spent more time here if the weather had allowed us to stay longer (heavy rain decided to fall upon us), but we still managed to go for a lovely stroll and stay for a bite... More

Compared to the disappointing fortress on the adjoining hill and the more ambitious Kapuzinerberg climb on the opposite side of the river, this was a dawdle. We started near the Augustiner Brewery (a must visit) and made our way to the top, paused for refreshment and the most astonishing views across the city, before descending via the modern Museum and...

Many people head to the Salzburg fortress for the best views of the city when they arw missing out on this gem of a place. Monchsbergaufzug provides amazing panoramic views of the city of Salzburg and the alps. I preferred this area because I can have the fortress in the photos as well and it works out cheaper getting your... More

The best views over Salzburg for sure. The museum is nice with many modern paintings and statues. We had lunch in the restaurant and it was good with a lovely view.

Worth climbing up the steps past the 12 Stations of the Cross until you reach the viewing area at the top. Waited to see the sunset over Salzburg which was beautiful.

Monchsbergaufzug is located about a mile (via the winding streets of old town) north west from the Hohensalzburg castle. If you have a Salzburg card, the lift to the top and the modern art museum is free. The modern art museum is nothing special but the view from the terrace is the best in Salzburg. There is a cafe on... More

Use your Salzburg Card and go into the Museum of Modern Art for free. Take the elevators to the top floor and go out onto the terrace for superb views across the town. Restaurants and a terrace means if the sun shines it's an ideal spot to rest your feet.

Nice little trip to the top and enjoy a drink and a walk to enjoy the views. The modern art gallery we could take or leave but as we were using our Salzburg Card, we had a walk around. Regards Gary Saunders

We took the elevator up and walked down. The views of Salzburg are amazing and there are restaurants and the museum of modern art too. I would go for the walk and views and skip the museum as it was not modern art as we expected but modern media art instead. A little strange and only for the curious. Better... More

Walk along the narrow streets to the entrance of the Elevator, on the way don't miss to see the old (closed) bakery shop with the door for only 5 feet tall People from the old Ages. FOR SHORT: Take the Elevator, on top enjoy the great views. BETTER FOR LONG: If you stay for several days, it is a must... More
