You have a choice of a few routes that you could choose among based on how strenuous you want the hike to be. You'll get great views of the city from the top. They do have a place where you can get some refreshments once you get to the top. You may encounter some panhandlers on your way though (especially... More

I stayed at an Airbnb (#3) at the bottom of the hill. This place is picturesque! It is worth hiking (even alone, no danger during daytime), up into the forest until the Franziskischlössl. You'll pass by oratories which one consisted of a beautiful representation of crucified Christ flanked by the two Thiefs, the Holy Mother and Saint John. You'll also... More

It is home to a Capucines cloister built on the site of a medieval fortress, the "Trompeterschlössl". Earliest human settlements on the eastern slope of Kapuzinerberg date back to neolithic period. Big prehistoric settlements on... More

We had a fantastic time hiking in Kapuzinerberg. The initial 5 minutes fee quite steep but later you do find a paved road. The entire view of the city can be seen from here and is extremely beautiful. You get a view of Salzburg and the Alps which is indeed breathtaking.

Great easy hike, different paths to follow, excellent views of Salzburg and the Alps. Maybe the first 5 minutes are a bit steep but the road is paved and there are steps as well so it's easy. The rest of the route is very easy-I haven't worked out for a year and had no problem walking up and down Kapuzinerberg.

This is a great place to either just walk up the road to enjoy the sights or to hike in the woods. The views of the city are fabulous during the day and at night.

If you enjoy walking in the woods and some hill-climbing, you should definitely pay a visit here. Some segments are quite steep but the views at the various viewpoints are definitely worth it. I visited in late autumn and the crunch of the leaves beneath my feet was very therapeutic.

If you need a bit of fresh air to blow away the cobwebs, or just want a break from city streets, this is a nice little climb right in the centre of Salzburg. The day I climbed it, the weather was cloudy and even a little foggy, so the views from the top were grey or non-existent, but I still... More

Only discovered this area on the morning we were leaving Salzburg but enjoyed climbing up and walking part of one of the tracks through quiet, heavily wooded area, coming to a picture postcard view of the Fortress across the river, which looked stunning from this vantage point. Reasonable level of fitness needed, but well worth the effort.

I have climbed Kapuzinersbegr several times and it never fails to amuse me. The views are stunning, if you are into hiking I would definitely recommend to do this one.
