“Fantastic Views of the City”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Not for the faint hearted...the views are great but the sheer drops look scary if you like me are afraid of heights. The Cable car is also very crowded hence the very good instead of excellent. It cost us 21 euros per person for the return trip on the cable car.

“Up on a mountain!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Amazing and truly magical! A small pleasant bus ride away straight to the mountain. Very reasonable fares. The top of the mountain is just beautiful! Takes your breath away :)

“Amazing views!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

We took the bus from old town to the tram that takes you up to the top of the mountain. The view was breathtaking. The world below was a snowy wonderland. This is a definite must do any time of year. I recommend buying a Salzburg card while your there, because the Untersberg is included as well as many other fabulous attractions.

“Great way to see Salzburg”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

This is an amazing way to see Salzburg and the surrounding countryside! No matter the time of year, summer or winter this would be an amazing experience for anyone wanting to see some of the natural beauty of the area.

Firstly, myself and my girlfriend visited during late December where the temperatures are approaching 0C during the day with highs of 5C so we got to see the mountain covered in snow compared to the low ground still being quite green and fresh. This contrast is absolutely amazing when you see snow laden mountain ranges in the distance with green pastures in between.

Secondly, we had very good weather so my recommendation is wait until you get good weather (I.e. Very few clouds in the sky) otherwise you'll not see a thing from the mountain as the low cloud covers it.

Finally, ensure you buy a Salzburg card as the bus fare and Untersberg ticket are included with the card and therefore it pays for itself, you then get added advantages of free beer tasting at the Steigl brewery or free entry to a number of the museums depending on your tastes (there are a number of other discounts/waived costs I'm merely trying to identify the spread of options).
