Untersberg is almost 1800m high and to reach the top is awesome as well as riding the cable car and viewing from great heights. However, it was foggy on the day we went so it was not optimal but still the thrill was there. Pick...More

So beautiful on the top of the mountain. But you have to check the weather. It's not easy to see beautiful scenery because to fog.

Really worthy of paying the cable car, but you should be careful about the weather as it can be suspended abruptly due to strong wind or rain.
