Great excursion for hiking enthusiasts! You can hike from the bottom to the top in 2-3 hours or take the cable car up and hike around the many trails at the top of the mountain. The landscape views are spectacular. Bring your hiking shoes, extra shirt, plenty of water and a camera. There are two restaurants at the top where... More

Have got to go to appreciate the beauty of the whole area! Taking the 25 bus all the way to the end, will make it easy to find!

If you have Salzburg card and have a lot of time (2-3 hours), then this place is worth visiting. There is a lift to bring you to the mountain top and you can enjoy the views around the Salzburg town. There are many people are going for hiking. The mountain is a bit steep and rocky so please wear appropriate... More

Do not go if heights are not your thing. The cable car provided a great thrill and also view but not for the faint hearted.

Spent an afternoon here enjoying the view and some beer. It was cheap considering it's a tourist attraction. Temperature was early 20s, when on the ground it was 30, so was very comfortable. Beautiful views. Cable car looks scary from the ground and I usually have a fear of heights, but I felt safe looking down inside the cable car.... More

It seems like in every Europe city, there is a place for you to view the landscape of the town. At Salzburg, it got to be Untersberg. With your Salzburg card, you can visit Untersberg. There is the funicular that brings you up there. Once you are at the top, sit down at a café and enjoy a cuppa or... More

Bus number 25 from the city takes you right to the base of the mountain from which you take the gondola up to the top. When the weather is clear (we had a few clouds) the view is terrific, so don't go on a rainy/cloudy day as you won't get the full effect. At the top there are trails to... More

The ride to the top is awe inspiring and even more so when you arrive at the top. Unbelievable views, great hiking. Worth the bus ride out of town.

In an unduly macho moment, I opted to hike the Reitsteig route to the summit of Untersberg, while my wife (always the most sensible of us) decided to take the cable car and meet me at the top. Over four hours later we were reunited (I rather more than the worse for wear). According to the official Wanderkarte, the Reiststeig... More

Untersberg is located at a height of approx.1740 kms above sea level. To go there you can take bus no 25 from the old town city centre. then take the funicular to go up there. the day we went it was cloudy. so when we reached up, couldn't get the panoramic view of the city. but we did get some...
