If you're up to a bit of a challenge, take the 209 steps up the Monchsberg Cliffs. There's a restaurant and fantastic views once you get up there but the real treat is the hike itself. There are gorgeous views of Salzburg all the way up and there are benches where you can stop and enjoy that view (and catch your breath).
The best tip I can give you though, is to do this hike on a Sunday morning. Around 10am, all the churches begin ringing their bells and to sit on a bench about halfway up the cliffs on a clear Sunday morning listening to those bells while looking out at an amazing view is truly heavenly.

Address: Stairs begin at Toscaniniplatz
