Untersberg is about 1/2 hour outside of the main Salzburg area and easily reached by the local bus (at the end of the route for bus #25). A cable car takes you approximately 4,000 ft up from the valley floor to the top of the mountain. The views on the way up and at the top of the mountain are... More

I bought a Salzburg card valid for 24 hours for 25 euros which covers this place too. From city center take a bus to zoo and the last stop it goes to Untersberg. First we went up the mountain by cable car and then you are on your own and can go trekking even to neighboring mountains which is a... More

We purchased a Salzburg Card and the cable car ride was one of the many attractions included. This attraction alone was worth buying the card for and by the time we took the No. 25 bus out to the cable car station, also included on the card, the card had already paid for itself. The ride to the top of... More

I rode my bicycle from Salzburg determined to go up the mountain in the cable car. Travelling with my brother who does not like heights left me with a choice, to do what appealed to me or miss out. So I set off in the direction of the mountain and found my way there by talking to locals along the... More

Worth the trip just to go on the cable car to the top. Good little café at the top is worth a visit for a coffee.

We took advantage of the excellent weather and the fact that the Cable Car would be closed from the following day until December 12th for its annual maintenance before the commencement of the Skiing season commences. A few days before the heavy rain in Salzburg had been turned into heavy snow at the top of the Untersberg and this added... More

My husband and I went up the Untersberg on the last day it was open, thanks to our hotel receptionist advising us to go that day or miss it. Really pleased we took her advise! The journey and the cable car were both free on our Salzburg card and it was an easy 20 or 30 minute or so bus... More

Great views for miles around once you reach the top including good view of the airport runway! Walks and surroundings well signed and informative. Take a jumper, it can be a bit chilly even in summer!
