It is the highest point in the area, from where you can literary see everything. You will love the atmosphere, the view and the fresh air. You can go there hiking or you can pay for the services that send you up very fast.

I am afraid of heights but I never let that stop me from doing anything and I'm so glad I did this. The cable car is a little scary but I just closed my eyes and when i got up to the top it felt much safer. The view at the top is amazing and you have the option to... More

Funnily, we almost missed this attraction as the bus which was supposed to be running to Untersberg was not stopping at the bus stop closest to our hotel on the particular day we wanted to visit, due to roadworks. As a result we were sent all over town by various locals and traffic stewards to bus stops in operation and... More

This is not the first time I take a cable car but this is a very impressive one. I like it but at the same time I was a little bit frightened by the altitude in fact the maximum distance from the ground is more than 280 meters. At the arrival of the cable car you have a 360' view... More

We saw Untersberg as part of the Sound of music tour and then drove there the next day. We took the cable car up and did a short hike to the café/restaurant. Wonderful/Scenic views and a visual treat to Sound of music fans.

A must see whilst in Salzburg. Advised to take the 25 bus from out the front of Salzburg HBF (here you can buy a Salzburg card at the tourist desk - bus ticket and cable car are included in the price). It was a very overcast day but still went. The mist was spooky (but awesome) as you walked around... More

We come from Thailand and definitely there is no snow in Thai. My kids is so excited to be here and play the snow. It is her first time. We spend hours and hours play snow balls. To me, I really love the restaurant here. The foods were nice and the beers...... hurs.... wanna go back again.
