If you read this, you're quite likely to have decided on going up Kapuzinerberg already. Therefore, I'll give you a tip you can use to enjoy the place more than others will. Alright, here goes: All the other recommendations start their journey uphill either an Linzergasse or at Steingasse, right in the middle of the city center. However, to enjoy... More

You can get a great view of Salzburg from many va tage points, but if you are also a fanof religious history, you will appreciate the unique figures in alcoves on your way up the Kapuzinerberg, and the Capuchin monastery at the top.

If like me, the crowds wear you down pretty quickly, this is the secret getaway! You will need to be prepared for climb though whether you take the steps up or the easier but higher again, roadway. Once in, your efforts are rewarded by either peaceful wet deciduous forest glades (and a gently climbing road) or views of Salzburg along... More

Went with a couple of friends who told me we would walk up a hill - sounded good. Terrain is good but in Winter, may be more difficult higher up. Within 20 minutes, we were at the top and the views across the city were good. But the best views are the ones from the other side of the Kapuzinerberg... More

We were glad we did walk up the Kapuuzinerberg, some stunning views across the city. You can walk much further across the berg or just enjoy the first views back across the city.

There are 250 steps upwards at the start and then things level off for a while. We actually missed the downward stairs that go directly to the river so we hiked a few extra kilometers and didn't mind it one bit! Fabulous Kodak moments at many spots. Definitely glad we went! It can be muddy so were good shoes!

Although not a particularly large mountain, the views over the city are magnificent. To hike the whole mountain takes under 2 hours and isn't strenuous. Walking shoes are important to wear as the road to get up can be a bit steep. If you make it past the first (short) hump, the rest is a breeze!

This cloister was founded during the Counter-Reformation and once housed Pope John Paul. The church up there is small but fine. The view is the main reason to make the trek up. You can see all of Salzburg laid out before you. I've lead groups of students there several times and often begin a tour of the city there, because... More

The peak of the Capuchin Mountain can be reached by climbing it up along a nice staircase starting from the Steingasse under a covered passage. It’s also possible to reach the mountain top through a slightly slanting way. Deflecting a few meters from the way to the monastery mentioned below gives one the possibility to visit St. John’s Church (Johannes... More

This is a former Capuchin Monastery at the top of a cliff; and if you want to reach it, you have two choices. Either you climb a staircase of over 100 steps, or you walk up a steep trail. I did both, and they're both very exhausting. However, the view from up there is fantastic. And for an extra challenge,... More
