“The Best View of Salzburg”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“In 30 seconds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2011

The elevators have a large size, even a large mobilityscooter does fit in and it takes less than 30 seconds to reach the top of the Mönchsberg (through the Mönchsberg). One ends up at the Meseum fur moderne, from there on to the Humbold terasse where one can enjoy the panorama over Salzburg. At the Humboldterasse is a restaurant located so one can wine and dine enoying the panorama. From here one can walk to the wehrmaur and so on. The waiting hall is decorated with mosaics.
