Me and my girlfriend visited in summer 2013. We took a bus to the small town at the foot of the mountain (Grüningen i think). The cable car up there was an attraction in its own right. I am not one for heights, so for me the ride up was a bit scary. However, my girlfriend loved it. Quite a... More

The bus ride is included with the cable-car ride if you purchase the Salzburg Card.The station was very quite when we got there and we caught the cable car as soon as we arrived (runs every 30mins). The view left us speechless. The mountain was covered in snow which made it difficult for us to walk along the path -... More

Awesome panorama view on the top of the mountain and very nice scenic ride with gondola. Aside of all that, there is an awesome restaurant on the top, where you can find great Austrian beer and food.

Bought the fantastic value Salzburg Card and took the bus to St Leonhardt. The cable car ride was the smoothest I have ever been on. Fantastic views of the Airport and surrounding countryside. Met lots of really nice people while sitting at the small cafe at the top of the mountain. Needed our stout hiking boots to walk around up... More

It was so much higher than I thought! Had a beer at the top and enjoyed the sunshine. The bus trip their and back was easy. A stop on the way back at The Hellbrunn was a treasure.

I went up the Untersberg on the day I was to leave Salzburg. It's an easy trip, just catch the #25 bus towards the Untersberg (the bus stops have maps and it's really obvious which direction the buses go in). It's approx 20-25 minutes by bus, in the small town/village of Grodig. When I was there, the cable car went... More

We bought the Salzburg card which gets you up the Untersburg for free. When we got to the top after a great and smooth ride we found that is was a bit too slippy underfoot to go too far. We thought it was a fairly flat walk to the top but could not manage it even with good trainers on.... More

Went up on a nice overcast day in the city, and we got beautiful views on the way up in the gondola. At the top, it alternated with snow and clearing. We got great views, played in the snow, and had a wonderful time. Stunning place.

During our holiday in Europe we promised our children we will go and see snow for the 1st time and out Hotel receptionist said there is snow on the mountain. The cable car up to the top of the mountain is a great way to view the region. We had a clear day and the views are fantastic. The kids... More

Firstly purchase a Salzburg card which is well worth the 23 euros as you are able to visit all the attractions in Salzburg for the one price including this cable car and bus ride no. 25 to get to the cable car. The bus ride is about 1/2 hour out of the city centre (again interesting to see other parts... More
