As per the title and as per previous reviews the views are just fabulous. We had absolutely wonderful weather and getting to the mountain and back to the city was a breeze on the number 25 bus. The only let down was the service at the restaurant at the top of the mountain. We sat outside to soak up the... More

Amazing views, especially if you go on a clear day. Though just a warning, the cable car is a little bit scary for people with height fears. And there isn't a lot of railings on the top so obviously stay away from the edge. You can hike to the highest peak of the Untersberg but it does take some time... More

For many years I have heard that you can actually ski on the Untersberg. This year I tried it out and had a lot of fun. First you take the cable car to the top of the mountain, about 2000 m high. You have to walk with your skis a little bit, before you start the descent. Parts of the... More

Pick a nice day to ride the cable car. Catch the 25 bus from the center of Old Town. Pretty ride to and from and a great view from the top.

Don't miss this! We got the Salzburg card and took the bus out. Beware that there is going to be an almost 20 degree difference when you get to the top so bring proper outerwear. The views on the cable car up were stunning. As we visited in April it was slushy and icy at the top so it was... More

Was there in mar2015. Bought the Salzburg card from hotel and took bus 25 from central and reach about 30 min if not wrong. Only our group of 5 was there in the morning around 10am. Little bit of rain and foggy up the mountain. Limited view and nothing much to do up there compare to Innsbruck. Took some photos... More

You should not miss this spot if you are visiting Salzburg (especially if you hold Salzburg card). The view is perfect, depend on how far you can go at the top.

Took the gondala up and other than being crammed full of people, it was an enjoyable ride. Once at the top, it was very cold and a bit icey. I did not go higher than the first resturant as I only had snekers on and started to slide as soon as I hit the snow. The views were tremendous, the... More

Great views over salzburg and the nearby alps. Really stunning views from so high but the weather is obviously colder and the ice hasn't melted. Take really sturdy and good gripping shoes if you want to walk beyond the cafe area.
