It was a great experience with good views. We took the bus line 25 in the town to get there, buses are quite often. At the top, there is an ok bar and you can access the mountains. The mountains don't have any safety protection on their borders. Need to be very careful.

This mountain simply has the best views of Austria on a clear day and graphically demonstrates how flat the land is. The cable car going up and down is an event all of its own; wait for the groans as it passes the first tower on the way down. I'd suggest dressing well as you are pretty high and the... More

The view was outstanding. It was heavy snow when I was there. Not so many thing to do at that time due to extreme windy and heavy snow. But worth to visit.

Great views of alllllllll around Austria... on a good day you can see over into Germany and Chiemsee! Its included in the Salzburg ticket, so make use of it and spend half the day there.

Easy to reach on the number 25 bus from the centre of Salzburg, and drops you off right at the bottom of the cable car lift (which departs every hour, and every half the hour). We had the Salzburg City Card so I'm not sure of the price, because it's included if you have the city card (seriously well worth... More

Good cable car trip to the top of the Untersburg mountain but the best bit was being able to walk/hike across to the summit about 500m away - fantastic views and a fun hike across the snow.

We didn't really know what to expect with our visit to Untersberg but it was far more amazing than we could ever have imagined! We took the bus 25 from Salzburg main train/bus station and it took half an hour or so directly to the bottom of the cable car. The cable car was extremely high but perfectly safe and... More

This tram ride was spectacular but not for the faint of heart! It is very high up but when you get to the top you can climb some more, hike and or grab a beer with a view. Worth the trip!
