cable car untersberg

Hi, I won't be in Salzburg for long so wa wondering if it might be an idea to head over to the cable car untersberg straight from the airport then go into the city. Can you tell me if it is possible to get there from the airport and how much time you think i would need to allow from getting the bus at the airport to arriving in the city after doing the cable car?

Many thanks

Generally you need to take bus 'O-bus 10' from the Airport to Salzburg Mo´zartsteg. Afterwards you take bus 840 to Grödig Unterbergsbahn. All together this journey take 45-50 minutes.

However, like nakagoli sais, it's closed at the moment

More Information on opening hours you'll find on:

untersbergbahn.at/en/…oeffnungszeiten

(due to Revision works it's closed until 15th December)

And even if the cableway was in service, I would think twice about going there. Sometimes you just do not have time to visit a point of interest, and making complicated detours to the disadvantage of other landmarks is not a good idea.
