Untersberg, Salzburg: 7 reviews and 18 photos

  If it's cloudy at the top, this is what you'll see

Untersberg mountain is just outside Salzburg, to the south, and on a clear day, you have amazing views. On a not so clear day, you have amazing views going up, until you hit the clouds...

This didn't stop us, and we figured we should just go up there, so paid the ?17 return cable car ride, and hoped for the best!

The actual cable car took around 10 minutes, and the scenery was great! You go pretty high up (1200 metres), and on a clear day, it is possible to walk a bit further to a restaurant (it was impossible when we were there!).

Looking down on Salzburg, the fort looked tiny!

At the top there was little to do because of the clouds, so got the next car down, which was packed full of people, although on the way up, it was just us two.

When you arrive at Salzburg Airport, the Untersberg Mountain is the large mountain you see, when leaving the main terminal.

Directions: Most tour guides tell you to get a 55 bus there, however, I think the bus route numbers have changed, and you now need a 25. If you're lucky, the bus terminates at the mountain Cable Car
