“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Catch the bus from new town . About 30 mins. Well worth the time. You also pass Hellbrun on the way. Salzburg card essential available at any Tabac.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Loved the view on a sunny day. The alps on one side with the city of Salzburg on the other. The snow at the top was melting fast so is was a bit slushy.

The trams up the mountain were very warm - too warm with all of the people crammed in and poor ventilation.

“What a ride & Oh, the views!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

It was such a gorgeous day, we decided to do the cable car. It's free if you have the Salzburg card - and SO worth it. This is probably the steepest cable car I've ever been on and when you think you are near the top - surprise you're not! - that was a little scary but exhilarating too. My spouse is afraid of heights, but he was ok with this ride. The views are spectacular - oh, what glorious mountains! There is a view of Salzburg too but it is far away. We hiked the paths a bit (but there was still a good bit of snow). With a little bit of clouds, moving in and out, it made the whole experience amazing. Spend as little or as much time as you want up here.

“Fantastic views!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I loved this trip! The cable car ride was really smooth, with amazing views.Walking around at the top was lovely, not just for the views of the surrounding countryside, but also to see the beautiful alpine flowers growing everywhere. The batteries in my camera were fading fast, but there was nowhere to buy any up there- so be warned!

“Wow!!!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I was a bit reluctant to take this scary cable car trip but the end result was worth every wobble of my knees!!! This was one of those few WOW moments that can't be duplicated. The weather was clear and the views were breathtaking. Hiking the paths was relatively easy. Used the Salzburg card for free admission and free ride on bus 25.. Take a few hours and do this
