If you are in Salzburg for more than a day and the weather is clear, you should definitely either drive out to the Untersberg cable car station or take the bus out there, and do a little mild hiking ( or the more demanding kind, if you are in good shape) to take in the wonderful view and the clean...

The ride with the cable car is an interesting experience. It felt scarier to go up, than to go down. We walked around a while in the snowy landscape and admired the nice view, but we didn’t do any hike. On the way down we had a good look at the Alps.

Really easy to get to on the number 25 bus that drops you right at the foot of the cable car. The car runs every 30 mins on the hour & has you at the top in less than 10 minutes. Really fortunate with the weather but still had periods when the clouds rolled in obscuring the view. Even so... More

Really nice sightseeing on the top! More than u can expect if you climb higher. By the way, the restaurant on the top is really nice and cheap.

This must be one of the scariest cable car rides I've been on! It goes up very high and had everyone gasp as it went over a ridge. So if you are nervous of heights mentally prepare yourself before you go. Fantastic views and lots of snow at the top in April. Price is included in the Salzburg card so... More

We only had a day in Salzburg and I wasn't sure that we wanted to spend it outside of the city, but we wanted to really experience the Alps and this seemed like an easy way to do it. I am really glad that we took the time for this! Untersburg was easy to get to: as soon as we... More

Was cloudy and cold in July but still felt it was ok. Would be spectacular on a clear day so give it a chance. I still enjoyed the trip and view even though it was limited

We took the bus and used the excellent Salzburg card to get entry for the cable car. It was quite a ride up, with great views on the way. Unfortunately the mountain was shrouded with mist so we could not see much. It was still a fun trip to do. There is a cafe at the top with great views,... More

We went on here for free..included in price of Salzburg card. Amazing views at the top. Stopped at one of the restaurants for a beer or two as a bit warm after the climb to the final summit. Requires sturdy footwear and a jacket as still snow on top in May.

Hike up and take the tram down or both ways by tram, amazing views of the Alps and Salzburg. Buses run past the zoo to the cablecar station, and in the summer you can hike a couple hours into the Alps to an ice cave, or if you are a power hiker as I am, you can hike roughly 6... More
