This offers a good city view, but we did not go into the museum of modern art at the top. It would probably be a good place to have lunch, but it was raining. Instead, we trotted down to the giant and amazing monastery pub through the park at the back of the hill and had a pint in the... More

We walked up and enjoyed the climb and views. We rode down, and it seemed very overpriced for the short ride.

There is a modern art gallery up here, which is very modern! It is quite easy to accidentally pay for entry to the gallery when all you want is a ride up and back in the lift. Its worth taking the time to have a good walk when you get to the top as within 5 minutes it's as though... More

The lift takes you up to an amazing view however, like someone else mentioned, it's nothing you cannot see from the Fortress. It's not worth the money they charge and there is absolutely nothing special about this lift.

Bought an all inclusive ticket for the lift and Modern Art Museum. Only went to the gallery as there was an exhibition of posters from the 1900s. Great views of the city from the panorama terrace. Enjoyed strudel and a cuppa on the terace of the museum restaurant, with lovely views of Salzburg castle. There is access to the restaurant... More

3.60€ return give you access to beautiful views over Salzburg. There is also a restaurant and the Modern Art Museum, but we just went up for the views. Did not disappoint....

One trip up and down is free with the Salzberg Card but it is worth paying. The view at the top is stunning over the city and there are some nice walks up there too.

Tickets were charged at 3.60€ two way or a one way option at 2.20€ (not too sure). It's basically just a lift up to the top floor with a view overlooking the city. It's not too bad but I prefer the view from up the fortress where you can see the Alps as well. We got the Salzburg card which... More

Good lift from old part of town to Monchsberg and Museum. Did not care at all for the museum, so the 9 euros combined for museum and lift was too much. Lift takes < 30 seconds for 3 euros. Would not take again.

Had I known what to expect I would have went there much earlier in the afternoon! You could spend the whole afternoon walking around overlooking Salzburg, having a nap etc or even better take a picnic with you! The forest around is beautiful, a nice castle dating back to the medieval times and the opportunity to walk back down thru... More
