“Best way to see Salzburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

We were given the tip from our guide about this option to see Salzburg. Fantastic view if the city, and provided an escape from the crowds, building work and the many tourist shops. If you have had enough of shopping this is definitely worth doing. The elevator is reasonably priced. If you have time go up in the elevator and walk back down, enjoying the views along the way.

“The Best View of Salzburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

The view from the top is magnificent! Cost of going up is very minimal compared to the marvellous view that awaits you. Very quick scenic elevator and not scary at all. Don't miss it. Highly recommended.

“Fantastic view - AVOID the restaurant at the top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

The view from the top of the Mönchsberg is fantastic; it's really worth spending the couple of Euros to take the elevator up. The best is to go up just before sunset and stay for a while, until the lights come on in the city. It's a magical moment. If you have to sit at the terrace of the pretentious restaurant upstairs, do so - I sat for an hour while there were probably 5 tables occupied, and no-one glanced in my direction nor, God forbid, asked me what I wanted to eat or drink. The service here is so totally oblivious it's scary these people are even employed at all. While I sat there, I witnessed a couple of middle-aged ladies summoning the waiter four times because he brought them the wrong drink again and again. After a while, I just gave up trying to attract the staff's attention and enjoyed the view. This is what this place is for.
