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...

Unfortunately the weather was bad (cold and rainy) therefore we were unable to walk on the mountain and see beautiful places :( We returned to the city after walking 10-15 minutes. Go to it only if a weather is good. Buy and use Salzburg Card, otherwise you'll pay a lot for the tickets in this and other places. There is... More

The 9 minute cable car ride is so smooth you would want it to last longer. The view from the top is excellent. But the mountain paths are rocky and slippery and steep and not for the faint hearted or children. At least Bus 25 takes you directly to and from the cable car station. Go early to avoid crowds...

Take the gondola ride you will not soon forget! Bus 25 takes you to the bottom of the mountain where you ride the gondola to the top of the mountain. This is the first thrill. The second is the incredible view once you get to the top. However this isn't really the peak. For those who like to hike, the... More

The Gondola ride, view of the city & the Alps and the snow must not be missed while in Salzburg. Entire trip is free with Salzburg card and easily accessible with bus no 25 from main train station. Time 3-5 hours
