The walk up to the Kapuzinerberg is steep with status lining the way. Not a long walk but be prepared to climb many stairs. Fantastic views on the top of the old city. Well worth it if you have the energy and ability.

The walk is quite strenuous and there are a number of stairs but the views from the top and the scenery on the walk make it well worthwhile. It had been snowing when we went but with hiking boots was fine.

As a local this is of course my favorite mountain. Walk up to the statue of Mozart and just keep going! The view is amazing!

Its the best place to have great photos from above. You have to climb a lot of steps but totally worth it! Go during sunset!

You can walk through the woods to the restaurant at the top and enjoy views looking to the West, but make sure the weather is good enough to justify the energy expended in the climb. You can get a decent view looking westwards at the...More

When in Salzburg I love walking on Kapuzinerberg with its wooded areas and the many stunning views over Salzburg's Old Town.

After reading some reviews I was a bit afraid to take this walk. Nothing of the sort, I was still walking with a Cain and thought this an easy walk and well worth it. If you use the stairs the are easy and have good...More

The location is in the city center. There are two ways to start to step up. First through the hundred stairs, and 2nd through a small uphill road. I chose the small road which I though need less effort compare to stairs. There were some...More

I never felt unsafe anywhere in Salzburg. I would recommend walking it in daylight. The view is great and it may be hard to walk in the dark.

It pretty much depends on your body. It took me around half an hour with frequent rests. I haven't done any significant climb in a while and I was tending a back and knee that could act up any time, so I didn't want to force... More

Hello, How do I get to Kapuzinerberg hill from the Alstadt? Do I walk up? How long does it take?

yes, you walk! you cross the bridge from the altstadt and go into linzergasse for about 200m. the entrance is through a gateway on your right. a little hard to spot.

Kapuzinerberg east trail closed for repair/construction (1 Replies)
On a tip from another poster we walked to the east end of the park to take the trail up which is supposed to be a little easier. Surprise! It's closed for repair and/or construction. The sign did not have anything on it that would suggest a finish date. This was on Sept 6, 2016.
